Do these pickups look like Texas Specials to you?

    Hello,

    Just bought a second-hand SRV strat and I'd like to ask if the electronics look original to you.

    They look right! I see the red and blue dot. I see the yellow wire on the middle pickup. They should have staggered magnets and maroon pickup wire under the covers.

    I have a question. I have a set of Tx Sp.'s that came out of a 2016 American Special Strat. They are identical to the OP's set and have the proper staggering, wires and maroon coil wire. The only thing missing with is a blue dot on the neck pickup.

    Is this due vary due to the model the TX Sp's are being used on?

    The dots, blue and red are not good for a id deal actually, because F50 will have them as well.................and either of the pickups can very well NOT have any dots.

    I have two sets: 1994 Lone Star Strat set with no dots and no stickers, the other set about 15 years old with dots but no stickers.
    As far as I know the old ones had no dots, the stickers came with the first aftermarket pups. But now it seems that factory installed and aftermarket ones have both - dots and stickers, but stickers not always on all pickups. The older TS had also a bridge pup with higher DCR, round 7.2k. I hope that helps.
