    Wonder if anyone can advise how Red & Yellow Strat pickup wire color-codes match to Black & White on a Tex-Mex neck pickup? Red-to-Black & White-to-Yellow? That would only be a guess.

    You may have to reverse those wires as some strat pickups are reverse polarity to tele pickups. Try it and see.
