hey Jonathan, welcome back!

there was a batch of echoplexes that went out a year or two ago that had a
component that was out of spec. The symptom was exactly that, every now and
then you would turn it on and it was like the feedback was stuck at 95%.
Most times you power up and it is fine. (that's why they slipped out, it
was hard to detect....)  It is relatively easy to fix, just by getting that
part replaced. If you contact Shane Radtke at Gibson he'll fix you right
up. <sradtke@gibson.com>, 1-800-544-2766 x206 or (847) 741-7315 x206.
