Overview

This big, bold 5-string combines the re-emergence of a historic Ibanez body shape with powerful genre-hopping versatility.

Reflecting a classic Ibanez body style, the Talman Bass Series sports a cool retro look with a sound that will inspire players of all ages. The Talman TMB605 is a 5-string bass offering the superlative build quality and high end features that the advanced player will appreciate.

The TMB605 starts with an Ash body for a solid, punchy tone. A Maple neck with Acrylic block inlays and a bound Rosewood fretboard creates a smooth, professional feel. A solid, fully adjustable Ibanez Standard bridge provides excellent sustain and reliable intonation. Electronics consist of a Nordstrand™ CND P split-coil neck pickup and a Nordstrand™ CND J bridge pickup matched with a custom 2-band active EQ for increased tonal options and an EQ bypass switch for a more traditional, vintage sound. A tortoise shell pickguard completes the classic vibe.
