OVERVIEW

Retro style with single-coil pickups and rosewood fretboard.

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 '90s, 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 TM302 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 smooth, easily playable rosewood 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 TM302 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 TM302 will deliver the tones you know and love in an instrument that reflects the evolution of the modern player.

      Comments about Ibanez Talman Series TM302 Electric Guitar:

      Ibanez knows how to make great guitars. The Talman is their next great model. Cool retro offset body with great mix of traditional and modern features. The guitar takes its cue from T-style guitars. The pickups are single coil and sound great: the neck is warm and the bridge is spanky. Both sound awesome overdriven. Better still, both are relatively silent. The neck is wonderful--incredibly well finished. Ibanez actually "binds" the rosewood fingerboard with additional rosewood to hide the fret tangs. This makes the neck very comfortable to play. The neck profile is fatter than Big F's C profile, which I love, but it's not baseball, 50's LP fat. I do prefer a fatter neck. The satin finish on the neck adds to the playability. The stain is a sandy brown color, which is much closer to the color of vintage necks than the bright yellow that some manufacturers use. There are no defects in the finish and, while 3TSB isn't my fave finish, for the price, I won't complain. The body includes a tummy cut and contoured heel joint--more comfort and playing ease. If you're looking for a great-value T-style guitar with a unique body shape, definitely consider a Talman.

      Comments about Ibanez Talman Series TM302 Electric Guitar:

      I had a 90's version of one of these back in the day which I regrettably sold, so I had to grab one when I saw that they were being reissued. Upon first inspection, I noticed that the strings and the frets appeared to be so dirty that they looked corroded. I'm not sure what that was all about, but since the rest of the guitar looked and felt good, I just decided to change the strings and wipe down the frets/fret board. Problem solved! The hardware appears to have an almost yellowish tint to it which would lead me to believe that it is composed of cheap pot metal, but I guess that's consistent with a guitar in this price range. The pickups seem a bit unbalanced, but certainly useable and capable of producing some good tones. Aside from those negatives, everything else about this guitar is all positive. The finish is flawless. The fret board is a nice, dark piece of rosewood, and the maple neck has a beautiful amber tint and feels great. Good guitar for the price!
