It isn't. If you want better tone, get a better amp.

And RG321 and a better amp would be a massive upgrade, but only get the guitar if your current one doesn't play well.

There are many other ways to get more distortion than just the gain form EMGs. Also EMGs dont work so good with SS amps if thats what your using. Try some different pedals first.
