Are we alive or just breathing?
OK, obvious checks first:

The volume is cranked up on your guitar?

You have the master volume cranked up?
Ibanez PGM301
Ibanez GRG170DX
Fender Telecaster MiJ - 1986
Swing T-Through

Ibanez TS9DX
Sovtek Small Stone - c.1985
EHX Big Muff
Kimbara Wah - c.1974
Boss GE-7

Orange Rocker 30 Combo

the volume on my guitar is at full and i already checked the wires in the output jack to see if one came undone(its happened to me before) but everything looked fine

If you've got a tube amp, it could be the tubes

I'd go with the speaker; or tube, if it's tube.

What kind of amp do you have?
Just let the good times roll.
may sound stupid, but is it in the input jack and not the headphone jack, it has happened before without people noticing

Do you have active pickups? If so are the batteries on the fritz?

Have your pickups maybe been lowered to the point where they don't pick up as much as they did? I dunno but I'm pretty sure the closer to your strings the pickups are the louder.

Do you wear a hearing aid thats been turned down?

Are there jewel encrusted monkeys living under your sink?

Also, humbuckers are usually louder than SC so that may be the problem.
