Shumberg Les Paul 70's Vintage Reissue Model
I bought the Les Paul 70's Reissue Vintage Gold equipped with P90.
Guitar probably of Chinese origin saw the price.
Everything has already been said about the hardware, the woods ........ it is a Les Paul copy.
Well constructed overall. Beautiful landmarks such trapezoidal pearl button. In looking more closely, the maniac that I am noticed some small paint blemishes in the varnish.
Rosewood fingerboard as factory that is a little pale as many new guitars. (A passage in linseed oil, and voila a beautiful touch to the dark as rosewood antique!)
Feature of this model: Equipped with P90 type pickups, and this represents for me the interest I will develop below.


The handle?! It is a matter of taste and colors! For my part, assuming that this is not the guitar that will fit me, I have no alternative but to adapt to the guitar! after a few minutes, I'm quite comfortable on the handle of this Shumberg whether rhythm or solo.
Access to acute ... Les Paul Standard, no how!

Yes we get easily a good sound, and that's a good surprise. It continues below!


Already in store, the guitar had challenged to the point that ....... well I've purchased.
But while saying that it could be that way, and it would most certainly change the pickups soon! And then I have a Gibson DC equipped with P90, then Shumberg, do not do it too his clever! Attention must be wary of a priori! Read the following:
Back at home, first thing: change the strings LTHB: 10-13-17-30-42-52, and immediate testing! it's true, I do not like elastic to make it sound in the bass, it takes at least that.
The pleasant surprise is confirmed. I had to lower the height of the microphone which had a slight fever tends to clip its clear. Once down, everything is back to normal: perfect, a real clear sound without spikes or unpleasant attacks. We emphasize enough the need to fine tune a guitar and adapt to their equipment. This is crucial.
I'm surprised rendering microphones either in clean or saturated. I do not know if it comes from the microphones, the fund, or combination of the set, but it is clear that his rings.
In middle position you get this sound characteristic of the international position, and the rhythmic and casseroles sound remarkably well. It is clear, dynamic and defined with a beautiful color.
I play both on a combo Marchemal JVM and a rack consisting of a PSA1 without amp and power amp --- Marsh, all shuttered on a cabinet equipped with Celestion V30.

Comparison with my Gibson: We play a riff, same microphone, we not touch the amp, you change the guitar and it repeats the same thing, and then continue and then again, ........ Briefly, we compare what: well surprise. My Gibson a little more "body" but is less clear and dynamic location intemédiaire example. Saturation, the gap is widening in favor of Gibson, but I am amazed at the performance of this Shumberg. Me who just look for more than two hours, I can speak knowingly, and say that there is a difference in (thankfully somewhere) but the people who will listen live with Shumberg, they will not notice a fire. I still say that question clarity and dynamic inter position, I prefer Shumberg. I mention in passing that his position in Inter is a subtle blend of the sound of two microphones that must adjust the height with a screwdriver to get the result which should be personal.

The choice of P90: Personally I like this type of microphones. more powerful than standard Fender single coils, but slightly less powerful than conventional Humbucking while having a good seed.
I do not know what is the origin of microphones that fit this Shumberg, but obviously is more than correct, and I therefore see no point in changing them.


I use it for a few months now in rotation with other guitars, and I always enjoy it again. I had originally purchased without too great convictions for its looks (and his e-store anyway) and for "a small excavator parts". It is now part of the exclusive club of "my guitar". I also use it in concert to preserve the cosmetic condition of my other guitars value, and I'm not disappointed (nor the other members of my group who were shooting a little nose the first time have taken live and have all been surprised rendering) Adopted!

Conclusion: RQP: RAS is good, hurry up before it increases!

Shumberg Les Paul 70's Vintage Reissue Model
French brand, but Asian manufacturing (obviously not Japanese), I do not know exactly the country of manufacture.

Easel type tune-o-matic tailpiece stop bar, but not exactly the same as my Gibson SG, it is nevertheless a very good job.

I do not know enough about all the profiles of innings, but roughly the same as on recent Gibson are not reissues. Advantage: the handle is asymmetric, this means that it is thinner towards the last freight, facilitating access to treble.

22 frets

Humbuckers, according to the manufacturer, there are copies of PAF.

Slightly flamed maple top

Mahogany body (one piece, not one floor like some Les Paul copies and original combined! See the pictures that I post)

Mahogany neck

Rosewood fingerboard

3 position selector

2 volumes, 2 tones

I do not put 5 stars, because if you expect a perfect copy of a good old Gibson, one is disappointed, but for the price, I think one of the best copies we can find! It is not "cheap" at all, despite two or three details, but at this price, it easily passes them by!


Is my 8th guitar, and my 4th electric, and frankly, it kills!

The neck is superb, filled well by hand, the key is pleasant.

Ergonomics, well, what is a Les Paul! It is not for the ease of play is not a superstrate!
I summarize:
Access to acute really means, it is heavy (like real!), The micro switch may be activated unintentionally because of its position.

on the other hand, it is fairly well balanced when playing standing.

The sound? Superb! Really balanced. I enjoy playing Sweet Child O Mine, the Led Zep or the good old blues, taken without any head for settings. A serious mic, 1 mic acute, 1 volume and 1 tone for each microphone. What more?

Only small problem: the pickups are a little weaklings to my taste (at the same time, they're PAF ...), I would change perhaps, but not right now, waiting to see what really it has in the gut, das all conditions!


I play mostly blues, hard rock, and occasionally a bit of metal, just to have fun.

In the first two categories, it is really good, but once you looking for a large and well saturated, it no longer appropriate. At the same time, it was not designed for that!

Well, the humbucker, mahogany, it is not a well defined and well crystalline.
Instead, we are dealing with a Les Paul, a true! A fat, heavy, severe spitting it!
With its clean, it explodes into arpeggios, with full chords in solos.
We climb a little gain, and you type nervous easily in a blues or a good old rock type Rolling Stones.
Going back a little gain, and it gets off! Spend all the classics! Lynyrd Skynyrd, Guns, The Zep, ZZ Top, Pearl Jam ... Taking his foot squarely!

I play on a Peavey Bandit 112, but I have tested it on good tube amp (Marshall, Fender ...) and it rocks!

I play mostly on the treble pickups, volume and tone it up!
Simple trick to avoid: micro serious tone and zero ... there, it sucks, we do not get it, you no longer feel the attack ...

Another plus: if we lower the volume of a microphone to zero, the selector microphones can be used as ON / OFF button, handy when installing or we stop playing.


I did not last very long, and I took it especially for the concerts, in addition to my Gibson SG to change tunings, all that, or to have a its really hot, my SG is more aggressive. She looks great, a very pretty table, finishing more than correct, sound great.

I tried a bunch of models before I decide on that one, since the time I want a Les Paul! The Epiphone, the custom 77, Vintage, and Gibson, Japanese ...
For my budget (even less!) Is the one that pleased me the most!

As stated above, the finishes are top, sound too.
Level violin, she is really good too. The electronics are well built, although there was no case of Gibson or Japanese.

For the price, I do not think you can find a better Les Paul!
Above Epiphone, I'd say equivalent to a good custom 77, but cheaper, and better finished!

PS: I post pictures, but because the flash colors are really loud, do not rely on this:)
