This is a half-size Somnium pickup cartridge that you can use in either the bridge or neck position. It accepts any standard humbucker guitar pickup, active or passive but the mounting hole is slanted by 10 degrees from top right to bottom left, so it is closer to the bridge on the treble side. Although it has squared off corners and fits vintage pickups like the PAF and many other rectangular humbuckers, you can also install uncovered humbuckers with rounded corners. Installation is solderless with a mini terminal strip for attaching your pickup wires, and a mini screwdriver is included.
Our cartridge is made of machined aluminum and stainless steel with mechanical locking pins (no magnets anywhere). Weight is 8.5 oz. (241 g). The pickup mounting hole is 2.77″ by 1.51″ (70.3mm by 38.5mm) with obround mounting screw holes at 3.0″-3.2″ spacing. This gives you a little wiggle room in case your pickup mounting tabs have a little variance. PLEASE NOTE that a pickup is NOT included; this is an empty cartridge ONLY. Any pickups shown in photos are for illustration only.
