Was just wondering if anyone knows a handy modification to help along the sustain of my 62' reissue fender jazzmaster, would a buzz stop help? The sound dies out pretty fast.

if you want a guitar with sustain, buy a les paul. you're missing the point of a jazzmaster
Gear:-
Mesa Single Rectifier
Marshall DSL50 (In the process of modding!)
Fender 2x12 Deville
Marshall 1960 (V30's)
Gibson SG Standard
Gibson SG Special
Fender 'Marcus Miller' Jazz Bass

My Band

People tend to get sustain from their guitars when they use high voltage amps and max them, which explains why you cant get sustain at low volumes.

The point of a jazzmaster is not that it has subpar sustain though!

You'll lose some of the overtones from the ringing behind the bridge, but yeah that'd help.
Skeet UK is awesome, he can get WD Music parts discounted.

I don't know what's in your neck pocket right now but you couldn't also try shimming the neck a bit more and raising the bridge a bit, that'd also help a little bit with the pressure on the bridge.
