that goop looks like liquid tape. he probably just dips the whole board. looks like the same shit is poured all over the switch, too.

You can see through the goop that the board this was made on is one of those radio shack multiple purpose boards. Can't be too much going on under there

According to tgp it's a dist+ with switchable diodes (si, ge, etc..).
Made around '96?

Yep. One of the IC "spider" boards. Very handy for prototyping; not professional at all to sell.

I had one of those. It wasn't a terrible fuzz: had single and dual Ge, dual SI and hybrid settings, although I couldn't really tell that much difference (some settings were fuzzier but it wasn't as big a difference as between a BC108 and OC75 Fuzz Face). At least that's what they said was going on under the hood. Would have been much more useful with a bias knob and possibly a tone knob. Oh well, long gone....
