Jems ringing certain notes to feedback

I've noticed that my Jem only rings a G at any octave and sustains it into feedback...This is very interesting...and useful.

No other note on the guitar will sustain forever like the G.

The notes do vary I'm sure, being said that every wood has a pitch.

So, if any of you have found your Jem's note....what is it?

Don't know about infinite sustain, but I definitely found a nice ring to an A on my 777DY, and on my Universe there's a cool feeling with the D's where it seems to get my trem springs and everything vibrating, creating an airy almost reverb-like quality.

I don't know If that counts, but on my S guitar it's the B note.
