That said, would a compression pedal be good for sustain, alone.?? I certainly don't want to limit the "signal." I don't like that sound. Not at this point anyways. And that goes right to the dynamic thing as previously mentioned above. I can live with the highs and lows for now. I want sustain.

Anyways... I play a lot of single note melodies. Would a compression pedal be good for sustain.??

Does your amp has reverb and delay? Another way to add (the illusion) of sustain is with some delay. Listen to David Gilmour how his solos are so spacey and his notes seem to hold on forever. He does use a compressor with the delay, but that tone is mostly delay.
