Hi, Jonesy. Thanks for sharing your wealth of knowledge on these boards. I'm doing my best to learn how to do my own guitar work, but I'm finding certain hurdles along the way.
I'm very wary of soldering to the back of pots. I know it's been done for a dog's age and all that, but I just don't like the idea of them absorbing all that heat. Even from just touching the casing for a few seconds with my 40W iron, they cook.
So, I've been looking into alternative grounding methods and came across the "star" idea. I felt pretty excited about trying it out, but after reading your posts about the different kinds of ground circuits and how the bus wire is essential to link all the pots together, I'm a little crestfallen.
Please look at the diagram below, which I made to depict how I'd ideally rewire my Swede (in its stock configuration). Could you explain to me if I'm way off course and, if so, how I can correct it?
