The tones knobs of my Squier Standard Stratocaster do not affect the tone from point 3 to 10 (it sounds exactly the same whether they're on 3, 5, 8, 10...). Only from 1 to 3 there are changes on the sound. Is this normal? If not, how do I fix it?

Oh, now I get it! It's because I have a left handed guitar! But I can't seem to understand how I fix the problem... Any help, please? I don't understand what a "reverse audio tape" is... is it the pot itself, or the whole wiring system?
Is there a way to change the wiring on my guitar without buying anything to replace?

Audio (log) pots
Sorry but the "curve" of the left handed pot works in the opposite direction of a R.H. pot so you'll have to change them out.......they aren't real expensive though.

But even if I switch the wires and let the pot work the opposite direction, won't it work?

Sure, your are the one that can keep it straight how they work anyway.
10-1 1-10 whatever !

My tone pots are class D, the volume one is linear (class B).
I'm taking my guitar for surgery :P, I'm going to switch sides of the lateral wire on the pots. This way I'll fix the knob giving opposite volumes than the ones indicated by the knob numbers, and I'll be fixing the logaritmic curve of the pots resistance as well. I'll have right-handed knobs on my left handed guitar, but at least they'll work properly.
I only have one question: I don't have to fix anything on the capacitors, right?
