The Fender website lists the pickups as "Blacktop™ Humbucking" in the specs and has a "Push/Pull Pot On Tone 2 for Coil Split".
Doesn't sound very different to me by that description.

Haven't played one, so don't know first-hand.

Best thing to do is git to a Guitars R Us and play a few to see if it's your cuppa tea.

Or buy sight unseen from a vendor that has a generous return policy ("if you are unsatisfied for any reason...").

right on Peegoo, they just open a new store near me they didn't have one naturally but I know this would be settling as I don't want a bucker in the bridge position let alone a lousy one. I did see a used mia tele some kind of deluxe model? passive pups with a full size humbucker in the neck, strat contour, transparent finish with binding. I have no idea what the model is but that's close what I always wanted but too expensive and dressed up. I want an affordable traditional tele with a good HB pup in the neck position. Full size or mini with standard tele pick guard.. I know there's no mim classic vibe like this or i would jump on it.

I believe many, if not most, Teles these days are made with routing that will accommodate a full or mini HB,or a P90. There are also some fatter, louder Tele-size neck pups available--like the Duncan Quarter Pounder or Hot Rails.

There's also this one. Comes in Semi-hollow version also.

Lot of good suggestions
I wonder if a classic vibe is routed for a bucker in the neck position.. I've given up the idea of the HH tele. If it is then that's what I'm gonna do. Now whats the best hunbucker for a guy that wants low output and good clean articulate tone? I think maybe a Seymour Duncan which I know nothing about I only bought fender CS pups when I wanted to change them. Will edit and put in link of my dream guitar and a player I have must respect for..

"I wonder if a classic vibe is routed for a bucker in the neck position.."

I know first-hand that the CV 50's and CV Thinline are not routed for a HB.

Also worth noting that neck pup route on the CV Thinline is just a teensy bit smaller than a standard Fender route.
I know this because I couldn't get a Strat SC pup to fit in there without doing some extra routing. (even w/o the cover).

Decided to order a MIM standard tele arctic white and pick up a Seymour Duncan vintage mini bucker and pick guard cut for it.

edited to add this link.
this sounds so great to me it's a large improvement over the typical lipstick pup.

I wonder what's the difference is from the HB in my American Pro Telecaster (the Am Pro has a normal neck pup & a zebra HB that splits in the bridge posistion.)

That HB in the American Proffesional is a great pick up. Great tones in HB mode. Not to bright, not to dirty... just right! & when split gives a real nice balanced tele single coil tones. love it.

that guitar is one of my favorites!

If those "Black top's" are anything near that Am Pro HB ... that's a REAL NICE Telecaster model. (probably not going to need a pup swap...)
