^^ yep, sustain, and that means (not to be patronising), basically, the length for which a note rings out / carries on
Why did Pat Metheney cross the road? He didn't, his hair got in the way

It's called Sustain, without the b, mate.
It does have great sustain, for a Floyd Rose type bridge

Yeah, sustain means how long a note rings out on a guitar if you just held onto it for a long period of time. Guitars like Les Pauls are famous for their sustain.

Ok, nevermind, I rudly assumed you were a newbie because you didn't know what sustain was and I was going to calmly direct you away from the $1330 guitar, but my mistake, nevermind.

playing for three yrs is a newbie.

^No, one year is. I've been playing for 3 years and I'm decent. Guitar isn't exactly the hardest thing to get decent at. Maybe hard to master, but easy to get decent.
#16
keep playing for 20 yrs.and you'll know what is and what is'nt a newbie.
#17
^I agree and disagree
but of course you just keep progressing (or at least I hope I will) so where do you draw the line between noob and not noob?
+ some people are naturally gifted in playing the guitar, others aren't, so it's not always the amount of years you've been playing that determines your skill...

Alright, he's intermediate, leave him alone. He's not that new.

haha

that reminded me of that scene in "This is Spinal Tap"...

"listen to this sustain. this guitar is famous for its sustain."

"i can't hear anything"

steve vai uses a sustainer on FLO, thats why in some songs the note rings out forever.

^He uses a ton of compression.


I heard otherwise, but I may be wrong. I know he has sustainer pickups on a few of his guitars.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

^ Yes, he uses Fernandes Sustainers. Cheater! :P
