Ibanez have revisited the Talman range in 2016 to offer a more traditional style, fitted with their own brand of high quality hardware and electronics. The TM302 will be instantly familiar to almost any guitarist while also delivering that unique Ibanez character.
A dash of 90's style combined with classic 50's tone
Ibanez has reached back in time to resurrect one of its most requested guitar models 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 TM302 is built around a 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 a comfortable, familiar feel reminiscent of guitars from the 50’s and 60’s, but its smooth, easy-playing Rosewood fretboard is where modern innovation takes over. A distinct Ibanez asset is its flatter fingerboard radius—a feature more conducive to the techniques of both modern guitarists and traditional slide players alike. Another advantage comes from the smooth, contoured Fast Access neck joint, which provides unfettered access to even the highest frets. Hardware includes an Ibanez IFX-10 fixed bridge equipped with six individual string saddles for superior intonation, and locking machine heads for absolute tuning stability. The TM302 features Ibanez “Custom Vintage” pickups for sweet classic tone and rich sustain—perfect for country, rock, blues, or pop.
Ibanez Electric Guitars 2016 This year sees the return of the RGA design in both the Iron Label range and Jake Bowen signature guitars, slick looks and mighty sounds aplenty. The new Talman Prestige guitars offer something a little different for Ibanez, with a really classic look and sound, perfect for rockers and blues players. Semi-acoustic players are similarly spoiled with affordable relic finishes and an update to the popular George Benson signature, Japanese crafted & fitted with specially designed pickups.
