Any explaination?

    When the strings were set up higher on my DB, the high C above the octave on the G string was dead. Now with the strings lowered, that same note has more sustain. I haven't done anything to the fingerboard. Can anyone explain? Seems the opposite would be true

    The higher the strings, the more your flesh surrounds the string when pushing it to the fingerboard. Unless you have leather-like callouses, that is.
