What is supposed to make this sound like a Plexi? No tone stack? What advantage does a second transistor have over just building an Electra distortion?

You have clipping diodes to ground connected to the output, so my guess is that the output level of this thing is going to be very low

Not really, the signal has still been preamplified, without clipping its too loud, even with the output clipped its still louder than bypassed signal.

And as for "how this will sound like a plexi"? its a very clean yet extremely saturated signal, jimmy page all the way buddy icon_twisted don't knock it till ya rock it brotha.

I know what transistors plus hard clipping diodes sound like, and I'm not commenting on the sound, which may very well be just as good as other germanium transistor + hard clipping setups. I'm asking why you're saying it sounds like a plexi when there is no obvious attempt to mimic the tonal response of the amp or include amp's tone stack. There isn't even a gain control identified. The input cap cuts a HUGE amount of bass, even more when you consider the low impedance created by gaining up the transistor like that (maybe a couple hundred K at most?)

You also haven't identified the diodes used. This is beside the fact that symmetric hard clipping diodes bear very little resemblance to tube triode breakup.

So why not just call it an overdrive instead of attaching the name of a (highly recognizable) amp to it?

Am I missing a trick, here, or is there no bias voltage getting to Q2 base at all? In which case, Q2 collector is going to get stuck at +9V and you won't get anything out of this circuit as drawn at all... Well, a tiny bit of heat, maybe...
