Hey everyone. I upgraded the stock pickups in my epiphone les paul custom a little while ago, and I did the wiring myself. Both with stock pickups and the new SD's, I felt like I was missing some of the high frequencies. After doing some research, it sounded like I needed to drop some 500k pots and new caps. I opened the guitar up today, and I already have 500k pots and .022uf caps. But as I look at the wiring, compared to the SD wiring diagrams on the site, something doesn't seem quite right to me. I am definitely no expert in this field, so I could use all the help I can get.
I was measuring the resistance on the pots and the tone pots measure about 500k, but (if indeed I AM doing this right) when I measure the volume pots the same way, the measurement comes out very close to what the DC resistance is for the respective pickups. I've made a quick wiring diagram of the way my guitar is currently wired.

Please help! Thanks.
