...from my avatar Warmoth and it sounds soooo much better, like it did when I built it. Same old strings but now running thru the body again as the Lord intended made the guitar alive again. I had noticed some tone & sustain loss when I put the Bigs on but that was overridden by the joy & excitement of having it. Now I'm loving the sound but missing having something to yank on, plus those empty screw holes....(sigh). Next string change I'll have to try some neck shims and raise the saddles. From scanning the forums I see this is a common issue. How many would concur that increasing the break angle will get my tone back at least partially?
