S 1520 and sustain

I recently bought an ibanez S1520 FB prestige 1999 model, made all of mahogany, no bubinga tops or such. I can't be sure for 100% cuz I don't have a good amp to make tests but I feel like this guitar lacks of sustain a little bit. I'm not sure if its because of light weight of the body, tremolo bridge or the problem is in QM pickups. What do you think S series owners ?

Is it big difference in sustain between guitars equiped with tremolo bridges or fixed bridges ?
