Ibanez has reached back in time to resurrect one of its most requested guitars models of the past two decades. 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 TM302BM begins with a curvy, traditionally styled Alder Talman body that produces a strong, full sound with crisp, distinctive high-end. The Maple “Talman” 22-fret neck is a traditional “C” shape for that comfortable, familiar feel reminiscent of guitars from the 50’s and 60’s—but its smooth, easily playable Maple fretboard is where modern innovation takes over. A distinct Ibanez asset is its flatter fretboard radius—a feature more conducive to modern guitar techniques, as well as being a friendlier surface for slide players. Yet another advantage comes from its smooth contoured heel at the 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 machineheads that guarantee solid tuning stability.
The TM302BM packs two Custom Vintage Single pickups, specifically chosen for their uncanny classic tone, aggressive bite, incredible sustain, and distinctive “twang” of a traditional double single-coil guitar. Run through a 3-way pickup selector switch, these warm single coil pickups 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 TM302BM will deliver the tones you know and love in an instrument that reflects the evolution of the modern player.
