Germanium Fuzz Face Clone Build Resumes!

While I was periodically waiting for the paint to dry (literally) on the baritone ukulele project, I was able to wire up the germanium fuzz face clone I started a while back.  Now that the uku is off the bench, I finished the wiring and fired it up.

The picture here is before I put the transistors in.  You can see part of the good news - which is it turns on and off.  It also passes signal in the bypass mode.

But there is no signal in the "on" mode.  I also can't quite bias Q2 properly.  I suspect I may have oriented the transistors wrong (backward), but I'm not 100% sure.  I need to troubleshoot.  I bet it's something easy (he says hopefully).
