I've only ever seen this trick done using humbuckers, which i generally detest, but i love the effect! Is it possible to get singlecoils that will allow you to talk through the pups? do you need really high output pups? I have 2 MIM teles, a MIM Strat and a Jazzmaster, so i would be looking for pups that would compliment those guitars.

The ability to talk through the pickups requires them to be microphonic, which is not generally considered a good thing... Pickups that squeal/howl when you stop playing (but still have the volume knob up) will most likely also allow you to talk through them.

 

However, if you're set on doing this, look for cheap pickups with little or no wax potting. The cheaper and nastier, the better.
