Question Orientation of Drill holes for neck HB wires on FP JEM?

I want to know how the Wires are drawn/Positioned from the neck HB pickup to the Control cavity on a FP JEM or GMC.

I can sure guess how it is drilled, but it would be good to know how Ibanez did it.

As you can see here there is a wire going down at the top. Where it goes from there in the question.

There is a lot of grounding screws here too. Do you ground each Pickup separately at different locations?

they drilled with a long drill bit right thru the "wall" between the neck-joint cavity and the neck pickup cavity. you can see the hole in the right side of this pic:



that's the hole. it runs straight thru all of the pickups cavities.

The wires I mention and want to know the Orientation of are the vaguely visible BLACK ones disappearing down in the uppermost ADJUSTMENT CAVITY (at the top of the PICTURE at 11 O'clock).

Does this ground screw also go to a Pot?

Why do they place the Pot Grounds in such places?
