I've never had that problem - my Spider IV 75 is about 18 months old now. I always use the FBV volume pedal to lower volume to 0 first. However, your problem could be the guitar with the EMGs. I have read here of people with active EMGs who lose the volume when they turn the guitar's volume up past a certain level. Seems like a voltage mis-match with the Spider's input section. The solution for this was to run the guitar through a stompbox first.
