Now, if you have multiples with same pickups, that's even better, but it's a fun question in general. I've noticed the "louder" guitars tend to keep a lot of dynamic through overdrive and really respond well to feedback in a musical way.

Please do not insinuate anything sexual from that.

He's insinuating that there is a massive volume difference other than the gain on pickups.

Some guitars are more resonant and 'sing' better. But that won't give you more than a decible or two of volume difference once they're plugged in.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

...the guitar that happens to be plugged into my amp at the time is by far my loudest one.

The only electric guitar I have... well it has a dimebucker in it which is louder than the single coil pickups on it...

As far as a serious answer, my LTD 250 is much louder than the Parker Nitefly and Epiphone Les Paul. I'm assuming its because of the EMG passives loaded in it. Either way, the distortion on the LTD is eons louder than either of those two. The clean on the Parker is louder than the two because of the Piezo though.

This part doesn't even make sense, the higher output a pickup is the more condensed the tone is going to get. If clarity and response is what you want then go with the lowest ouput pickups you can get and set them far back from the strings.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

I think he means how naturally loud and resonant the guitar is rather than how hot the pickups are.

I would tend to agree with that... more resonance means more vibration in the wood, pickups, easier to coax feedback out of that kind of guitar.

In terms of testing on a fixed amp setting, my Cort is way louder than anything. Could be the EMG's? But it also has great acoustic resonance. My Yammy with the L500 pup is next and a good bit louder than my old '71 SG. That was about same as older Gibbos I had. Not tried that test on my 12-string but hard to compare with twice the string input.

The loudest one is my Iceman with Dimarzios, but the most dynamic is my Schecter PT that has a vintage-type single in the neck and a hot vintage PAF-a-like in the bridge.
