Help: Sterling Valentine Pickups

Hey guys, just hoping I could get some help on changing the pickups on the Sterling Valentine please?

I recently picked up a Valentine in Buttermilk at a great price and I love it to pieces, but I just want to swap the pickups and the new ones I have are braided.

For those of you that have changed pickups in this guitar; should I solder the metal braid to the volume or tone pot? When I first took the cover off it looked like it was soldered to the tone, but I’ve read that it normally goes to the volume, so I’m a bit confused. This is my first time changing pickups in a guitar so I want to make sure I do it right.

Thanks in advance for your help/input!
