Ibanez has reached back in time to resurrect one of its most requested model guitars of the past two decades. And while true to the original of the early 90’s, today’s Talman brings with it a familiar, yet fresh sound that places it squarely at the crossroads of modern Ibanez innovation and cherished traditional tone.
The TM302PM begins with a high gloss finished, traditionally styled Talman Alder body for a strong, full sound with beefy lows and stinging high-end. The Maple “Talman Classic-Plus” 22-fret neck is a traditional “C” shape for that comfortable, familiar feel reminiscent of guitars from the '50s and '60s, but its bright, clean-sounding Maple fretboard is where modern innovation takes over. A distinct Ibanez asset is its flatter fretboard radius—a feature more conducive to the techniques of modern guitarists, as well as being a friendlier surface for slide players. Yet another advantage comes from its smooth, contoured Fast Access neck joint, which provides unfettered access to even the highest frets. Hardware includes an IFX10 fixed bridge equipped with six individual string saddles for superior intonation, and locking machine heads that guarantee solid tuning stability.
The TM302M includes two Custom Vintage single-coil pickups, specifically chosen for their uncanny classic tone, aggressive bite, great sustain, and distinctive “twang” of a traditional double single-coil guitar. Run through a 3-way selector switch, these warm, single-coils are excellent for country, pop, blues or classic rock. Players who derive their distortion from an amp will appreciate the versatility and responsiveness these moderate-output pickups offer—back off on the volume and you’ll find your sound transforming from a snarling bite to a clean, singing tone with softer attack.
No matter what style you’re playing, the TM302PM will deliver the tones you know and love in an instrument that reflects the evolution of the modern player. Case sold separately.
