could be a sustainer, could just be some feedback

I can't watch youtube on my team bus apparently -_-

But this question gets asked a lot and 90% of the time it's feedback. Feedback used in a controlled manner can seem like endless sustain. If not that, like CJ said, a sustainer possibly. Fernandez makes one of the most famous ones.

Another thing you can do is develop a great vibrato. Kirk Hammett isn't known for having great vibrato, but a lot of players with great sustain abilities do.

That is unquestionably just feedback.

No effects needed, just raw volume!

With a little bit of delay and well the hands of Satch, you can get this level of lovely sustain/decay/feedback control!

The only real answer to the SG vs Les Paul debate is to get a Flying V and laugh at all the suckers who don't have one.

if you embrace inaccurate intonation it can be quite arousing.

some of the jackson guitars have sustaniac pickups.with that pickup, u can hold a note until u die. just type "jackson sustaniac" on youtube, u'll see.

That's just feedback. You can make feedback by turning up your amp really loud and facing your pickups towards the speakers. Jimi Hendrix would do this a ton. That's how the intro to foxy lady is done.
