Hey guys, I popped my guitar open a few weeks ago to fix some minor problems, one of them being with my tone knob. For a while it just didn't do anything at all. I rewired it, but I messed it up a little bit. Now instead of turning the knob down for less tone and up for more, its inverted. Whatever, this isn't a big deal, it's not getting in the way. The problem is that instead of the knob rolling the tone off, it seems to do nothing until you reach a certain point. It's almost working more like a switch, where one side is all the tone, and the other is no tone.
Could it be cuz I wired it wrong? Is it a problem with the orange resistor thing? Or the pot itself?

I know exactly what I did wrong, I made a connection to the wrong port cuz it was easier to get at :/ I was hoping it'd just be oriented backward and have no effect on performance
