Well i went and bought 25k pots for my guitar since it had 500k in it before.
I tried rewiring the emgs. It makes sound but the selector switch doesnt work,nor the volumes or tone.

Heres a pic of the cavity.

I agree with -MintSauce-. It looks like you've got the hots of both pickups making contact with the grounding circuit.

EDIT: The outer wire gets grounded to the back of the pot and the inner wire (still wrapped in plastic except the very end) gets soldered to the middle lug of the pot. The wires should not touch each other. That's why they have the extra layer of plastic between them.

SYK is right. That's exactly what I was talking about. The way EMG does their diagrams confuses alot of people that are new to guitar wiring just about everybody.
*fixed*

The first time I looked at an EMG diagram, I thought: "What the fuck is this??"
