Which pickup would work best?

I'm thinking about routing the neck of my strat to hold a humbucker instead of a single.

What would be some good pickups to get a cream "woman-tone"-era-ish/early sabbath/t. rex kind of sound?

Yes, vintage (PAF type) output. The Seymour Duncan SH-2 (Jazz) is popular and versatile. I have two sets of SH-2s, and have been thinking about getting a Dimarzio Humbucker-from-Hell for comparison. In spite of its name, the output and range of application is similar.
