The red, white & blue simply indicates bridge, middle & neck.

Cloth pushback wire indicates Fender Custom Shop & the RW/RP middle eliminates 54s or 69s. I forget if 57/62s have RW/RP middle but the yellow lead from the bridge eliminates those.

They could also be Fat 50s as those also have cloth wire, staggered pole pieces & a RW/RP middle, measuring the bridge pickup would be the quickest way to tell.

Off the top of my head that seems a little low for a Texas Special bridge, those could be Fat 50s. I’ve got it written down somewhere & will get back to you.

They're not Texas Specials, as those don't have rounded pole pieces like yours have
The 57/62 doesn't have a RWRP middle
The '69 has a grey base plate

Most likely Fat 50's
