Jaycar's "Twang-O-Matic" (for Australian readers)

Jaycar's "Twang-O-Matic" (for Australian readers)
Has anyone built Jaycar Electronics' "Twang-O-Matic" kit? It's one of their "Short Circuits" series. Despite assembling it very carefully, all I get from it is a bad gate effect & a pretty good overdrive sound - not at all like a Hawaiian guitar as advertised.  
P.S. If you're considering having a go at it, be warned that the instructions don't come with the kit ($15.95) - you have to buy the book as well ($28.95 or thereabouts).
