you have no lead wires, at all...

on the 3way switch, did you bend the middle two lugs out and combine them with the outer two lugs? im trying to see whats going on there...

let me draw up something using your colors above so you can see how to wire it

ok first things.
- the middle two tabs on the switch needed to be bent inward and together, so you have single lugs on the outside, and the middle two together as one in the middle.
- normally, the braided bare wire from the pickups is ground, so put that where you currently have the white wires from the pickups. then move the white wires to the outer lugs.
- the new middle lug on the switch (not the ground that you already have) goes to the middle lug of your volume pot
- the capacitor generally just goes to the back of the tone pot from the middle lug
- run a wire from the back of the tone to the back of the volume

see my picture below. green means bare wire from pickup, gray from the pickups mean white, and the gray to the output is your clear wire. the brown wire i added to ground tone to volume




your way of doing the tone works too. but you should still add the brown wire
