    I'll answer some. Google is your friend, search google for more info.

    An f-hole looks like this: http://tinyurl.com/39w5aql

    Notice that the guitar has two holes in the body shaped like an f

    A round hole looks like this: http://tinyurl.com/3xcycwe

    f holes are typical of "archtop guitars". The tone differs compared to "flat top guitars". You need to hear it.

    Cutaway: A cutaway means that part of the body of guitar near the lower frets is shaped differently so that your fingers can touch the lower frets more easily.

    This is a cutaway guitar. http://tinyurl.com/24w4fzv Notice that you will have better access to the lowermost frets.

    Pickups: A plain acoustic guitar won't have a pickup, so don't worry about it.

    Now, learn to play, what else... If the sound is muted it might be a problem with the guitar or your technique... Ask your guitar teacher or whatever you're learning from.

    put ur finger at the middle of the fret and press it hard enough to hear proper sound.
