So the low B on my 7 doesn't sustain AT ALL. I fret a note and it's immediately dead. The gauge is a .58, I plan on bumping it to .62 though. How do I set it up to where I actually get sound out of it? The truss rod is good and I've messed with the action a lot

first of all, what are you tuning too? and will the guitar hold this tuning? you may not have enough tension on the string.

By measurement do you mean my scale? If so it's 25.5 and to ad_works I rarely go out of B

I assume he meant relief. Start at the setup thread and try from the beginning. I don't see why it would be any different than the rest of the strings, and if you weren't aware of what a relief measurement is you probably missed something.
