I've installed the Tone Emporium Testify Blues pick-ups in my strat...WOW! I've gone through a lot of pick-ups in my 30 years of playing and I can honestly say that these are my favorite by far. The quality is impeccable, from the sheath on the wires, to how they are packaged, the attention to detail...second to none. The string to string definition is amazing! They're quiet and most importantly, they deliver the tone that is promised in the product descriptions and demos.
I've installed the Big Time 54's and Testifys in my strat and loved them both, the Testify model is exactly what I was looking for so I kept those in. I've also dropped a set of the '52 Tele's in to my Telecaster and it spanks and quacks just like it should!
I'll be ordering the Majesty High Gain Humbuckers for one of my Ibanez guitars and will post how that turned out, I have confidence that I won't be let down.
For Boutique pick-ups at a crazy good price, one cannot go wrong. If you want to make your Mexican or American strat come to life, try a set...they have many different models to choose from. Over time I'll be swapping all the pick-ups in my guitars to the Tone Emporium ones, there really isn't a need to go anywhere else. It looks like the models are growing also, so I can't wait to see what they'll make next!

i like how hcfx has had a huge increase in both random spam bots AND shameless companes
Not to mention the huge drop in users. It's a pretty spectacular forum experience IMO.

Well I suppose I see your point given how it could look to others, however, it's not my company,I just like their pick ups. I was just trying to provide some info on a new product for everyone. Small companies need the help of experienced players in order to grow, if everyone gets their backs up then how can they have a shot. Just like a going nowhere basement start-up band...there's a lot out there that are probably amazing, but if nobody gives them a chance...this is the first start up company I have used and thought they deserved some praise that's all.
