I don't think so. I've used them with 500K pots and they sounded great. There's a small group of people that absolutely love 1M pots, which is fine, but that's definitely an optional thing. Keep in...

Changing strings is easy, I'm sure there are several tutorials on youtube for changing strings on a SG/LP type guitar.

The type of string to use is totally up to your personal preference. I'd start...

Those diagrams don't answer the question at all.

If you ask what their current routing is on the MIM Standard strats that would clear it up for everyone.

I think you should play them a bit more and make your own decision.

We can't really tell you if you hear enough difference to justify one amp over the other.
