My current guitar has barely any sustain on the Lower strings. When I turn on distortion all the strings have this awful buzzing sound when picked on, but the EADG strings are by far the worst. This only happens when I pick the strings. The G string around the 12th fret sustains a few seconds less than the high C on the high e string. It's not a grounding issue. If this helps, I also replaced pickups before.

So how do I get way more sustain and get rid of this awful noise?

Also, can someone give me the average sustain time for different guitars?

Thanks.

Your action might be too low. Try raising the action a little until the buzzing goes away and see what happens. Also, make sure you don't have a noise gate with the threshold set too high anywhere in your chain; that could do it as well.

My action is not too low. It's already pretty high. It's weird, it only happens when I have distortion on, but it happens with all my distortion pedals.

Are you using the power adapter with your cube? Cable? Have you tried a different amp?

Try a dry signal into your amp (skip the pedals, troubleshoot as needed), check your cables and try a different amp maybe?
