Somnium Guitars Transforma

The build quality and engineering behind Somnium Guitars' Transforma series was rather impressive. It's built around a modular system of interchangeable parts that allow you to swap pickups, center blocks, and body styles quickly and easily.

The company will also produce blank pickup modules that can be populated with nearly any type of pickup you can throw at it.
