    The centre lug of the pot connects to pin 7 of the 12AX7

    The ground could go to the same point as the one coming off the 2.2k resistor n the preamp section - usually a solder tag on the chassis.

    That layout is pretty much how I would have designed it...looks good.

    You could make the 47K NFB resistor switchable for more grit.
