I typically do ground the bridge by drilling a very small hole in between the the mounting screws. Usually at an angle. Then I just use a very small wire and strip it back, double it over bare, lay it flat and then fasten the bridge on top of the wire to the body.  From there, I solder this ground lead to the back of the pot or to the jack ground.

Did you ground the pickup on that tailpiece?? Im going to try to make a tailpiece similar to the ones you do and was wondering if I should ground a pickup there or just on the back of the volume pot.
