ground loop prevention qwesion

Hello .....Im in the process of hooking all my electronics back up on the bc rich (yikes) Old warlock since installing a Motherbucker & a domarzio in the neck. Although I have most of it all wired in, Iv e saved the actual ground system till last. I have 1 wire coming from Trem claw. 1 ground coming off theoutput jack ...... All I have for setup is 1 vol pot & 1 switch ......... Does anyone know what is the best method for avoiding a Ground Loop??

Ive HEARD ya have to make the strightest path from the claw to the output jack with No cut-backs anywhere,meaning cant run ground down to the pot then cutback & go to switch then go BACK again towards the Output jack, instead just keep it as straight as possible & simple as possible.

Im gonna use the Last thing b4 the OP jack as grounding point which will be Vol pot.
