im getting these 3 pickups

Neck: Seymour Duncan SH-2n Jazz
Middle: Boutique 5.55k strat single coil from GFS
Bridge: Seymour Duncan SH-4 JB model

I have a 1 vol, 2 tone setup, and my volume is going to by a push/pull for a coil tap,
im wondering what value pots i should use? Usually 500k's are used with humbuckers but ive heard some sound better with 250k's...?

The JB sounds pretty painful with 500k, IMO, so you might want 250k for that one.

All 250k.
Personally, I think you should just go with one volume/one tone, and leave the 3rd pot unattatched. That way you can control the tone of all the pickups, instead of the neck and middle.

just to check
there isn't a ground to the bridge or trem claw?
and the "ground" ontop of the push/pull can be moved to a tone?
and isn't a tone pot have to have a cap on it?

There should be. Just make one in your guitar, and solder it to the same place as the other grounds. I didn't include it, as I just figure it's common knowledge.

Absolutely. I recommend that, so you don't melt the stuff inside your push/pull.

If you're doing the version with two tones, the tone pots share the cap.
If you're doing the one tone version...The tone cap is there on the diagram..?
