I was shopping for an electric acoustic with a cutaway today and fell in love with this Mitchell SD-100. It was just under my budget and I fooled around with it and it sounded great. I get home, put it in tune, and it sounds "tinny" and it sounds like i'm buzzing strings but I know my fingers are on the fretboard correctly. I feel like the strings are flapping against something. I tried without a pick and i can't tell there's an issue. Once I strike chords with a pick is when I hear it.

I made a video, the audio is recorded via the electric output with no effects. I am having this problem in both electric and acoustic mode. I really hope the problem is not me. I have two other acoustics and don't have this problem so i'm thinking it's the guitar. Oh, and i'm not actually trying to make music, i'm a beginner and just strumming erratically.

Not too sound stupid but maybe its the pick hitting it? I can't tell from the video and I'm not too fimiliar with acoustics. Maybe your strumming angled?

Sounds fine to me. Maybe your using a heavy pick? Try a flappy thin one for strumming chords. It also sounds like the strings are kinda new. They will probably be a little bright for a while and then mellow-out some.

I was going to say Low action, but saw the vid, nothing to worry about, trust the other people who said that

Thanks for all the replies! I'm only 1 month into learning guitar. I will have one of my guitar friends at work take a look at it and see. I'm sure it's fine. But, I will let everyone know what the final verdict is.

You're proably just not particuarly good at holding the strings down yet - my fretting was still decidedly shoddy after only a month

Ya sounds like your not pushing down with your fingers hard enough, but acoustics are harder too.

sounded fine to me.

just sounds like a cheaper pickup system, but that's to be expected. i didn't hear any buzzing or anything.
