I'm another one who adores the simple Tele. I don't have one right now, but a friend of mine plays one in his band Four Star Mary and gets some AMAZING tones out of it. Everytime I go see them play when they tour over here I get pangs for days.

Ironically apart from swapping the bridge itself for a vintage style one, I believe he's kept the original single coil pickups! I don't notice the hum but since you're buying pickups especially for a project Tele, maybe you're right to look for a humcancelling design.

As far as tone goes, I've heard good stuff about Tom Anderson's pickups too for his Classic T guitars, but I don't know if they're hum cancelling or not.
