RG1570 Trem-Bend Sustain

Hi guys.
I've bought a new RG 1570 with Edge Pro.
I've noticed that when i bend with tremolo open strings and fretted strgins the fretted one's decay too fast.

Is this OK?

I lowered the bridge pickup a little, this helped to get more sustain with open strings (harmonics).
What about fretted strings, it's almost the same. E.g. G-string fretted on 12 fret, Full-bending the tremolo and it decays.

The bridge is Edge Pro, setup is Platinum from IbanezRules.
Note: This is my first Tremolo-guitar.

P.S. Sould i post sound demos?

This has always happened on my edgeIII I assume its just one of those things about floating bridges but I would love to hear if anyone has a way of fixing it.

Re: RG1570 Trem-Bend Sustain

OK, now my bridge pickup is 4mm away the strings and the neck one is 5mm away. It has noticable better sustain now and the tone is still OK as far as i hear )

Still wish to read your opinion, friends.
