Drill a small hole from control cavity to under the baseplate run a wire from the usual back-of-the-pot ground and ... usual practice is to leave a loop of bare wire to be crushed between the plate and the body ... Me being a maniac might attempt using a very large hot iron with a bit of flux and tack soldering the wire to the base plate. If it's gold plated that'll go. If it's chrome then it would have to go to the base metal if it's brass or steel.
I'm with you on both points, yes, the wire mash seems to work but there's a sort of rock solid aesthetic that it lacks. Hell, drill and tap for a ground screw.I'm trying something a bit different on this lastest one. I'm drilling a hole, inserting a spring and attaching a ground wire to the spring. I may start doing that for tunomatic posts too. I never really liked the smoosh-the-wire method, though I'll admit it works fine.
