Vince, if the volume pot is acting like a tone pot then you almost certainly don't have pin 1 properly connected to ground. The point of that connection is to connect the output to ground in the fully ccw position, and if that isn't happening then the ground connection mustn't be true or the pot must be damaged. Reflow the solder and check all your ground connections for continuity with a multimeter.
All the resistor values seem to be correct as well as your track cuts. What transistors did you use?
