Work with the other guitarist in your band to differentiate your tones. Whether this is by using different-but-complementary guitar combinations like Les Paul and Telecaster, Strat and SG and so on, or simply making sure you’re both using different pickups and distinct EQ – invest time in this aspect of your performance and you’ll reap the rewards.
And remember that volume is far from the only factor that audiences pick up on. Design your guitar parts to be tonally unique, use repetition and work on phrasing, occupy the spaces in the arrangement and the mix.
Finally, work on band dynamics as a whole during solos – the greatest resource you have to ensure you’re heard is the rest of your band.
