Yeah, you should replace them ASAP. Factory strings suck. Get some Ernie Balls.

Yeah, often the strings on a guitar have been sitting on for ages between the time the guitar was built and the time you took it out of the box.

you have nothing to worry about. even a "new" unplayed guitar has probably been sitting for a month or more. thats a long time. and like other people said, factory strings are the worst. try some ernie balls for some strong strings, elixirs for tone (i think) but stock epiphone strings are NOT what you'll want to keep on there
