On the current uke I have been playing - an Epiphone Les Paul - I am noticing significantly less sustain on the A string than any other.

When strumming, it is fine. But when I play fingerstyle, it is very noticeable. It could be the uke itself, but I have no idea how to attack something like that. I was thinking another type of A string might alleviate it.

What would be your recommendation for the string with the most sustain - for the A string on a GCEA tuned concert scale uke? Thank you.

Got Aquila reds on my concert, they seem to ring out a longer than the stock nylguts it came with.
