sorry for waking the dead, but maybe that was the reason sustain was so poor.

Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with your guitar man. I also have an RGA (121) with an X2N in the bridge. It sustains for days, i have my action pretty low too.

People are complaining all the time about sustain problems, and rarely anyone is looking into the very cause of sustain loss = the woods. So while I acknowledged and I apologized for the resurrection, I thought it is good for future readers desperately searching for their sustain problems, to consider woods before spending a fortune in meaningless hardware upgrades (like Titanium trems and parts).
