It is meant for the hobbyist (so commercial use of any of these layout is not allowed without permission) and as a way to give back to the online DIY community.

EHX Axis Fuzz/Guild Foxey Lady

Before Electro Harmonix made the Big Muff there was the Axis Fuzz. These were the same as the 2-knob Foxey Lady fuzz EHX made for Guild. Most schematics on the web say 100k pots for both fuzz and volume controls, but the unit Ron (theehman) over on the DIY Stomboxes forum traced used a B1M for fuzz and a A500k for volume. So if 100k doesn't sound right, try those out. For Q1 and 2, the originals had 2N5133s, so try 2N3904 or 2N5088s.

Here's a demo video of an original Foxey Lady:
