Previous owner installed a loaded pick guard with custom shop pick ups on my 1997 strat. Neck pickup has blue dot on 6th string pole, resistance measures 6.15. Middle no markings, 6.00. Bridge pickup red dot on 2nd string, 6.38. Did a search but can’t find a clear answer on what set of pickups these are.

How about the pickup poles -- staggered? Beveled?

Does the middle pickup have yellow/black lead-in wires?

Poles are staggered and beveled. Black and white cloth wire on all three. Wound wire is bright copper.

Correction: middle pickup wire has yellow tint to it

Possibly Texas Specials.

These custom shop pickups have a higher impedance reading than the originals that are Texas specials.

If I had to I would go with Fat 50s if they have gold windings and a black bobbin and assuming they are a set rather than different models.
I have a fat 50s bridge here red dot second string not connected measures 6.55k slight bevel on the poles.
The coloured dots aren't quite right but I have seen some with dots on slugs other than specified.
The resistance can vary as well but is a bit high for anything like custom 50s, 57/62s, 60s and presumably installed prior to the incarnation of the fat 60s which have a pretty high resistance value.
Texas specials have a purplish winding from memory.
I presume they have the after market CS logo sticker which is why you assume they are fender CS. :D
