Hello.

How can I achieve more sustain in my sound without purchasing something?

Thank you.
It's difficult to win unless you're bored.

lower pickups, and improve your technique.
the gain setting on your amp could help too.

stick your guitar head on a big piece of wood (eg, table, cabinet,ect) the vibration will travel to the table and it'll be reflecting sound and what not, not sure if it'll improve sustain though

And you expect him to do this every time he plays his guitar? :P

Learn to use a subtle vibrato to increase your sustain. It's what Hendrix did, I think.

Raise action
lower pickups
turn up volume
turn up gain
Put your guitar in contact (the more contact surface area, the better) with something big and made of wood.
