So this wiring diagram kind of confused me. Are both of the wires from the pickups that are going to the selector switch grounded to the back of the volume pot, and if so why? Would that mean that the signal from both pickups would be going to both wires on the switch?

Edit: so yeah I looked at it and realized that it said to solder them both on, so, my question is why?

only the outer (braided) shield is soldered to the back of the volume pot.
the inner conductor of each is connected to its place on the selector switch.
