Hard strum distorts signal


Hiya Folks,
Trying my hand at some circuits, found the May Queen by ROG. Put it together, subbing some npn transistors i have. It works, but the input is easily overloaded when I strum. I have no idea where to begin trouble shooting his. I am open to suggestions. I'll check the values, reflow, etc. It seems to me that I'm missing something...(lol)

Dare I ask where you obtained your J201?

yes farting would be a good description. I got the j201 from small bear. I just replaced it - no change.
