Question: Are CTS pots better than Alpha pots?

Ive used Alpha pots and they didnt suck the tone out of my pickups. CTS may last longer or be more sturdy, but as far as I can tell they dont sound any better than Alphas.

What pots do Strats use?

Single Coil pickups and brighter-sounding pickups (think Strat, Tele) use 250K Pots. Darker-sounding pickups (P-92, 43-Gauge Big Single, P-90s, and Hum-Cancelling P-90s) use 500K Pots.
