Most people will tell you the Epiphone is better then the Gibson brand.

What sound are you looking for?

I think your amp is the problem, general view round here is that it's awful

I had an Epiphone Les Paul Custom not too long back and I didn't much care for the sound either. It was a very nice guitar, but it could've sounded better.
Then again, it could be your amp having an effect on your tone, too.
As my one of my old guitar teachers used to say, "Metal really comes from classical music. The only difference is pinch harmonics, double bass, and lyrics about killing goats."

your settings could be wack on both the amp and the digitech floor board pedal

I have a Epiphone Les Paul Custom and it sounds pretty good to me. Have you tried playing it on another amp or without the pedal?

You may have gotten the wrong idea from what you read here. Most people will tell you an Epi Elitist beats a Gibby Studio.

Dude, jesus, its your amp. That amp wont get you a good sound no matter what.

You'll have to buy a new amp for a better sound.

exactly what he said that is a bad amp dont be taken becuase it says marshall n it ohh and by the way all the MG marshall amps arent british made so they have a different sound

alright im glad to hear its probably the amp because i love the way my guitar feels just the sound has been bugging me a little.

i could be way off but could the brand of my cords make a difference?

New Chord won't do any good. you need a new amp. That amp is pretty bad.
