can anyone suggest what i can do to help this?

loads of volume. that's probably how they got it to sustain for so long.
otherwise just a sustainer pedal I guess? if you really want to.

set up, maybe poor pickups, have you still have the "shop strings", if not slap new strings on.

New strings, pull the pickups higher to the strings if they aren't already, and of course gain.

Yes, too much gain sounds like ****, but it also brings in loads of sustain.

I tried it out in store.

Great neck, nice n light, good tuning stability. Overall a good guitar. I didn't but it cause I generally only buy guitars over a grand now.

Of course, we all favor loads of sustain over sounding decent. As long as that note is holding. Reminds me of Spinal Tap when Nigel tries to show Rob Reiner how good the sustain is on his LP without even playing it
