I've noticed that my Xiphos gets a ton more sustain than my Jackson.

My question is whether it's due to the fact that it's a neck-through whereas the Jackson is bolt-on, or if it's the pickups.

My Xiphos still has the DiMarzio DeActivators it came with, and the Jackson has the Duncan Designed pickups that it came with. Because I'm wondering if investing in new pickups for the Jackson will really be worth it.

Well, I can't really speak to that because I got my Dinky a few years ago, and it has chrome hardware and different specs than today's. I got shafted because they are a lot better now. It's a really great guitar for the money. Go for it.

Neck thru's usually have a longer sustain and better upper fret access, though it all depends on the neck wood as it basically functions as the guitar "body".
