The New Standard

Why would you want to be stuck with only one set of pickups? Somnium Guitars are professional-level instruments with the amazing option to snap in any pickups you want at any time. It is the ultimate tool for tonal creativity, your personal palette of tones to express your music, your way. This is the new standard for what an electric guitar should be.
