But reverb is one word!

I should think that higher output pickups, neck thru guitars, more gain, and louder volume all have some hand to play in better sustain.

eBow if you want the easy way, very loud amp if you want the more deafening way.

+1, except for the neck-thru bit; as proven in tests and as I learned via private testing, neck-thru actually delivers the least sustain. Bolt-on actually provides he most, contrary to popular belief.

All the neck thrus I've tried have had more sustain than bolt-ons.

Idk, perhaps there are other factors at work?

if your using the gain channel on your amp you should have not problem getting sustain

moog guitar.


I saw a video of that thing a few weeks ago, freakin' insane. The note just kept ringing and ringing, I think that could get annoying after a while though, I kinda like it when the guitar starts to fade out.

Loud tube amp, proper EQing, properly set up guitar, killer vibrato, play with the feedback - that's how all the pros do it.
Actually called Mark!

Quite likely, although I've done the tests myself; two ESP's modded to sound and look identical, one new one used,, both EMG pickups, both mahogany bodies, 24 rosewood frets, the bolt-on had more sustain.

But yeah, probably more factors like the amounts of wood, pickup outputs, and stuff like that at work.
