I know this can be done, but I just want to make sure its ok...

I have a tone pot that doesnt seem to be working, so I just wired both the volume pots to the same lug on my tone pot, and it seems to control them, but it just doesnt sound right, but I think it might just all be in my head, haha

any help? thanks

I was looking at the first diagram and wouldnt that just give you a tone control when the pickup switch is in the middle, and not for each individual one?

and the gibson wiring is different then the typcial wiring, atleast on my sg. The volume pots are connected to the tone pots with a capacitor, not a wire. Instead of a wire connecting them, and a capacitor running from one of the lugs to ground.

But if I wired both volume pot to one tone pot, it should work fine right? its seems to be connected about the same as the second diagram, except it goes from one volume pot to the other, and then to the tone pot, instead of just connecting them both to the tone pot like I did.

No, the tone control is attached to the hot output of the switch. It will work.
