bad set up feels good?

ok i own a bunch of guitars and i have them all set up very nicely dead neutral lowest possible action (even filed down a few frets) but about 7 months ago i bought an rg 350 ex and the trem is so far sunk into the body its not funny, but it feels amazing and the sustain on notes just never seem to end....(for ibanez pickups) does it makes n e sense that a guitar so poorly set up could feel and play so well? im scared to change the set-up lol.

It sounds like the trem is as LOWEST as it gets before it buzzes. I'd use it as a guitar for solos, and use the others if you want to go nuts on the whammy. But that's if your into recording.

If it plays well and sounds/sustains well, how can it be a bad setup?
