Yes, but that was not my point : if I understand you well, you are concerned about the place of the cap : from the input or from the output of the vol pot to the tone pot. This is what people refer as modern or trad lespaul wiring. Try it and you'll see what suits you the best. More info here for instance : http://www.mylespaul.com/forums/tone...g-library.html
My concern was the wiring from the hb pickup to the volume pot ; even witout a tone pot, if you connect the hb output to the wiper and go out from from the outer lug, you will have tone sucking because of the way the pickup is grounded when you turn the vol down. The only way to have real independent volume control is to have a blend pot..., but once again the way gibson wires the 2 pickups works to some extend
Hope that helps, sorry for my english...
