Is there any way to improve the sustain on a guitar?
Im playing throu a Cort x6 and i feel my notes are cutting shorter then
i want them to, is there anything i can do to get a bit more of a ring out?

Tiny amount of distortion maybe? If your playing clean then a mild amount of distortion will increase sustain and give a bit of crunch to your tone. That could well help.

Also vibrato, like squeeze the sound out, don't bend it just a slight quiver can do wonders and a nicer touch to your solos and such.

theres a thing i believe its called a "fat finger" and its a c clamp that attatches to the neck of your guitar, which adds mass to the headstock. it would be cheaper to go to the heardware store, and buy a small clamp there, it wont be chromed, but who cares?

You don't argue with tubadude on Washburn-related matters, he flosses with the G string from a set of 0.12's y'know....and it's WOUND!

Ooo i heard about those ^^^ apparently they do work, won't do much for your appearence though. Also try a peg? Might work can't say that i've tried it though. Clamp it to your headstock, cheap and easier way than that "Fat Finger" thing.

VVV There is always the thru-neck thing.

compressor pedal, my sustain is insane (rhyme lol) and it doesnt change the tone at all, or get a better guitar with better wood or thru neck

I get my sustain from my Tubescreamer in combination with my gain. Gives me sustain for days.
