okay, so what I've noticed is that my dads guitar (which was the cheapest thing they had at the store) seems to actually sound better than my guitar ( which was like 500$)

This is especially noticeable when it comes to tapping and sweep picking. The tapping hardly makes a sound on my guitar. So I have come to 3 possible conclusions. Either it has something to do with the size, as my dad's guitar is really small, and I'm kind of a small person, or I got extremely ripped off when i bought mine, or it has something to do with the string gauge, as my guitar's strings are significantly heavier than my dads. So does anyone know what could be wrong?

You could be talking about a Jackson select USA Randy Rhoads vs. a Epiphone Special 2.
