You could solder pickup to the jack like that I'm just saying you already think its loud 1/4 way up with the volume control/pot on your guitar right? well even with the control wide open it would be loud as you say but if bypassed it and went straight to the jack it would be even louder, as well as the tone control and switching if you have it lol

yeah you could do that, a tone pot would dampen some volume and you could tailor some frequency cutting

Could you answer Enzo's first questions:

How loud is it with the volume all the way down? It should be pretty quiet, or check the volume pot. If hiss is really loud, jack between and figure out whether the noise is from the power amp or preamp. If preamp, consider checking for a noisy op-amp. Is the power amp noisy with no preamp connected?

One thing I'll add: if it's still clean but too loud for intended practice, consider getting or making a switchable 10:1 or even 100:1 power soak and/or power L-PAD or T-PAD.

BTW ENZO is the real expert on most things Peavey!
