    I like a dark sound myself, as long as it is articulate and punchy

    But do you crank the amp? Crank the gain if you have an amp with a Gain control?
    Stand in front of your amp?
    If you don't that wouldn't really make a difference in the feedback & stuff.

    I play on stage with a 38 watt tube amp- it is loud enough that I can't put it much past 1.5/10 with the master around half. It gets loud very quickly. Generally we put it behind the drummer and me.

    I also keep my guitar pickup volume low. 7 on the master and maybe 3 on the PU. I think if I maxed out my PU volume I'd be getting way too much noise and feedback

    Ok--no problem--they aren't for everybody or every application--they can get into that gain category earlier--so it may or may not affect you as you postulate--could go either way--but you do need to be careful with hollowbodies...

    Yeah probably not suitable for me- gain is one thing I have plenty of capacity for

    As long as people play electric guitars there will be those who want to get louder


    And later there were ones that went to infinity...

    That's still peanuts next to infinity...
