Well, that's pretty good for a first attempt, but there is one problem. The way the volume pots are connected is interactive: turning down one control will cut off both pickups. This happens on Les Paul's and SG's, because the volume controls are connected the same way, but because they also have a switch, it only happens when both pickups are selected. Because you do not have a switch, both pickups will always be selected, so the volume controls will always interact.
It's easy to fix though, simply switch the contact that the pickup enters with where the signal exits, that is the bottom two lugs of the two volume controls in your diagram. In this configuration, the two volume controls will not interact. This makes the wiring basically a Jazz-Bass style, only with two tone controls.
