how do some artists hold notes for so long?(stranglehold for instance right before the solo starts) I try but it fizzles out within 5 seconds, any help?
#2
Probably a lot of compression (an effect), or vibrato, or a thru-neck guitar made of mahogany or something.
Why did Pat Metheney cross the road? He didn't, his hair got in the way

So have any of you actually tested identical guitars with different neck joints to see if they sustain differently?

Cranked tubes sustain pretty nice (see: Gary Moore)

Sustainiacs or the like can give you a little help though

Sometimes guitarists get infinite sustain by playing very loud with plenty of distortion so that a note turns into feedback.

i get lots of sustain on my LP with just volume and distortion.
also, overdrive+distortion give infinite sustain. you dont need no compressor.

Yes.

Bolt-ons & set necks have the same amount of sustain, period. Neck throughs sustain a little bit longer, depending on the type of neck wood used.

glad that's out of the way then

It actually really annoys me how people have some sort of issue with bolt-ons

Yep. It just piles ontop of all the ignorance going around here already.

only issue i have is that they dont feel right, i also dont like the neck join to the body. set necks and thru necks feel a lot more comfortable
