There's them that say that sustain ain't so great for fingerpicking because the notes run together. So if there's not much sustain, the notes decay more quickly so you can hear them separately. I play a 1928 National nickle silver tricone which has miles of sustain, a 1994 National steel single cone which has next to no sustain, and a 1931 National steel tenor single cone which has the opposite of sustain, so you'd think I could speak with authority on this, but in reality I dunno. They all sound good to me in different ways.
