    Would someone help me read this wiring diagram? It looks to me like the capacitor is wired to the tone pot only, from the case to an outer terminal. Is this correct? I'm installing 2 EMG-35DCs in a volume-volume-tone configuration.

    Yes, this is how it is - the tone control gives you a variable rolloff of high frequencies to ground via the capacitor.

    If you look at other wiring diagrams, you'll see this is standard wiring. Such as this standard J diagram
