Hi, nice combination. You have your volume knob on 12. I think that´s very loud isn´t it. Maybe you try the airbrake so you can play wherever you want. The Gibby Jr is a nice axe too. I would like to have one for some slide stuff but as long as I know there are no new ones so I´m looking for another guitar maybe a SG. Have fun with the amp.
actually, the amp is not too loud with the volume at noon. actually i could use a little bit more, but it doesn't get louder, it gets more overdriven as you increase the volume. the other guitarist in my band is louder than i am with his 50-watt marshall jmp half-stack, although my speakers are louder and more efficient than his (my 100db-rated scumbacks versus his 97db-rated greenbacks).
i am working on a homebrew attenuator (should have some schematics waiting for me via email as i type this) in the next week or two that should pair very favorably with the gt, IF i need to use it. i tried it with the other guitarist's hotplate and it sounded great.
thing is, i don't really play gigs where i'd have to turn down. as a matter of fact, i'm usually looking for just a little more with a quad of el-84's (like my last amp). our band's stage volumes aren't overbearing, just evenly mixed to sit well with a loud rock drummer. i don't have a problem hearing vocals in the monitors most times.
not sure what you mean re: the junior. yes, it is an amazing guitar, and i've owned several juniors, from 50's originals to 60's sg's, to reissues both japanese and us made... this one might not be EXACT to an original '58, but it stands on it's own merits. amazing guitar. and it's a 2006 gibson historic. so the new ones are out there, you just have to look...

GuitarZ: Bells & Whistles-New Cars. A year with our Subaru Outback, finally realized doors have to be unlocked for inside rear hatch button to work. Dang! I need that feature for social distancing. Looked like an idiot pulling up & jumping out to manually open.

GuitarZ: Best Pandemic Comment - Delivery guy shows up. As we're social distancing, I look at myself in brown loafers, black socks, gym shorts, t-shirt and say "I realize this is not my best look". His response "You can wear whatever you want to the apocalypse."
