My electronic diagnostic skills are somewhat still lacking but I assume its a stray wire touching the case on the inside? I might take it apart and have a look?
Could be a lot of things.

I wholly support the notion of taking it apart and setting eyes on it.

Could be a PNP based circuit built in the way of placing Vcc on the shell instead of common.

Could be a lot of things.
Is HNW the new MISC?

So I took the back off and had a play around. Tightened up the in/out ports which were working loose.

On the pcb there was a 3 pronged "thing" that was very loose in a row of 5 terminals. I wiggled it about and made it s tighter fit. Hey presto, awful humming noise gone and it's back to being a fugly fuzz pedal as intended. Not sure what it was or why it worked but it has. Job done.
