Yes. Get a better acoustic.
Andy uses thousand dollar guitars that have a great great sound and action to them.

But you can make the most of your tap by making sure that
you tap in the lower middle of the fret and relatively hard.
Harder than what you would on an electric with distortion is what i mean.

It has nothing to do with his acoustic. All guitars do that when you tap on the string. The only reason that you hear more of the desired note when Andy plays is because he's amplified.
Equipment:
- Art & Lutherie Cedar CW (SOLD! )
- Martin D-16RGT w/ LR Baggs M1 Active Soundhole Pickup
- Seagull 25th Anniversary Flame Maple w/ LR Baggs Micro EQ

Try muting the opposite side of the string with your fretting hand.

This. The same thing happens when you play slide. You have to mute behind the slide.
