Need help with wiring diagram

Hi guys
My first project is to rewire and change the humbuckers in a LP style guitar. I have everything ready to go but lo and behold when I look inside the guitar, the wiring is COMPLETELY different to how I'd planned to do it. After much searching around I realise there are lots of ways to wire this thing. If you would be kind enough to look at the schematic I made and tell me if it will work, you will save me a lot time unsoldering everything if it is incorrect.

It all seems to be fine, just I'm not sure about how the ground is going to the output jack - I'm not familiar with LP switches though, so this might just be my lack of knowledge

Put it together this afternoon and it sounds sweet. soldering looks like it was done by an 8yr old, but there has to be a learning curve right?
