hi im tryna get the most sustain possible outa my guitars rite now im only getn 4 seconds of sustain from the 22nd fret with a pedal i have that has sustain only adds about 2 seconds to that givn me bout 6 seconds max n it gets a bit wierd sounding during the last moments, im playingat a comfortable listening level tho, not sure if louder=more sustain, SO, HOW MUCH SUSTAIN DO YOU GET?

feel free to list any top rated sustain pedals too..

keep in mind that im only interested in the 22-24th fret area, open notes seem to sustain forever, any tips n tricks to help me get the most sustain out of my guitar?
also do thicker strings sustain longer than thinner ones?

ALL help welcome

Upgrading pickups. if your into that.. Costs quite a bit.. But it'll be worth it... Amps too... ones that cut through a lot.. eg.. Marshalls, etc... Hope I helped just a tad

well what kind of distortion are you using? if its a pedal, you might wanna try a fresh battery, that usually makes my sustain and over all tone a little nicer, maybe its in my head, idk. the boss cs3 gives some nice sustain

just turn the gain to like 3 or four and turn all the volumes all the way up. should get some decent sustain especially with a sustain pedal

Get a Fernandes Sustainer.
Known.
Some.
Call.
Is.
Air.
Am?

Incoherent - yes.
Without meaning - I'm afraid not.

"Known some call is air am."
Which is to say-

Well you should have thought it through before you made such a ridiculous user name.

I'm a dude....but I do have anal leakage sometimes if that means anything?

im guessing that if you adjust the distance your pickups are from the strings this will increase the sustain, but im guessing this will probably create other problems

You're very hostile for someone asking for help.

If you have a tune-o-matic and stopbar, you can top wrap it.
#24
i've heard that wrapping your strings around the tailpiece instead of just putting them through it helps sustain. That's if you're playing a guitar with a stop tailpice like gibson's

EDIT: damn! beaten by one post!
