This is a full-size Somnium pickup cartridge that accepts any standard humbucker-sized pickups, active or passive, covered or uncovered. You can install one or two pickups and this cartridge can be snapped in two ways: with the bridge pickup at the bridge or at the neck for two different tone combinations. The pickup mounting hole is 2.77″ by 1.51″ (70.3mm by 38.5mm) with obround mounting screw holes centered at 3.0″-3.2″ (76.2 – 81.2 mm) spacing. This gives you a little wiggle room in case your pickup mounting tabs have a little variance. PLEASE NOTE that pickups are NOT included; this is an empty cartridge ONLY. Any pickups shown in photos are for illustration only.
Our full-size cartridges are used for keeping a collection of pickups together as a group so that they can be snapped in with just one click. If you want a cartridge made that has two dissimilar pickups, for example a humbucker on one end and a P-90 soapbar on the other, please contact us and we can make that for you if it isn’t already in our current lineup.
Somnium cartridges are made of machined aluminum with stainless steel locking pins. Installation is solderless with a mini terminal strip for attaching your pickup wires, and a mini screwdriver is included.
