Shumberg SG SPECIAL P90
1-piece mahogany neck, flat, wider than a LP but thinner, very close to the original, dark rosewood fingerboard
Mahogany body (may be several pieces but not sure), profile of Sg very well respected
2 P90 pickups (wilkinson)
2 volumes, 2 tones
WilkinsonBridge , tailpiece & tuners 
3 position selector (neck pickup,  bridge pickup and 2 microphones)
Asian Electronics  but ... see below
Vol and tone knobs and the plastic ring of the selector are a little cheap and denote a bit with the quality of the rest of the guitar  this price but we will not quibble, these are only details which do not affect the qualities and functioning of this guitar
superb colour and  polish, no problem with the finish.


The neck is very nice, an SG: flat, thin but wider than a LP (I repeat myself)it's a highway with more-than-easy access to higher frets 
The varnish does not stick, it's a treat!


So there!
I was looking for a decent guitar I could mod  to replace my original SG 63, which I sold a few years ago and quiteregret ;  I saw the  (crazy!)prices for this type of guitars today, I have no longer the means to afford what I could  20years ago.
So I plug the beast in my Marshall JTM 30 with  a  February SansAmp Tri-AC in between.
And there, smack!
beautifu lclear sounds , superb crunch and  a saturation so strong you have to sometimes hold it back .
So microphones that stick perfectly to my expectations but the most surprising for a guitar made in Asia, are the very progressive potentiometers , either volume or tone, they can give fabulous sounds without touching youramp settings and it is not common for a guitar of this price.I've been practising guitar for 30 years


 and I have owned beautiful and expensive guitars, .
Less well-off than before and since the vintage market has exploded upwards I now find myself to  test  and sometimes buy   asian-made axes of any kind and it sometimes reveals a surprise!
My first encounter with Shumberg is due to the chance of a sale or exchange  where I was offered a 335-copy   which I have already written a more than positive review about ,  and now I'm not going to let  this guitar go !  
Quite naturally I opted for this SG as I said above, in order to change the pickups and electronics like the 335, but I will not!
It is just fine as it is for a cheap price but when in your hands, it is not cheap at all and what sound!
A real pleasure to try and buy, plus it has a real vintage look.
