Default 'dimed'

Can someone enlighten me as to the meaning of the word 'dimed', as in 'A guitar with its volume dimed will have an output impedance lower than 34k'?

TIA,
Pete McK

found this:
http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/dimed

"Using dimed to mean at ten or full volume is pretty common here in South Carolina”

"The only way you're going to get the 'dimed marshal plexi' sound is with a dimed marshall plexi. It's gotta be non-master, though, and you have to put all the knobs on 10."

so what do you call it if your amp goes up to 11?...
