Why isn't a G&L ASAT Classic wired like a Fender Tele?

Heres a pic of the wiring on mine below. Why is the tone cap just soldered to the tone pot and not across to the volume pot like a regular Tele?

Leo decided that was an improvement over the Fender design.
Maybe because it cost less...

Apparently the inlays in some of the first Fenders were cut from floor tiles that were leftover from a project or something.

I changed it to regular Tele wiring using the same tone cap and it sounds better.

Does anyone know if there a reason G&L wires it like that?

Maybe he did it differently so Fender wouldn't give him a hard time.
