Originally launched in 1994, the Ibanez Talman guitars gained popularity post-discontinuation. The comeback includes the TMB30 short scale bass, capturing vintage alternative bass tones. Despite its unconventional shape, the Talman is designed for comfort, featuring a Poplar body for added weight and low-end thump. The Maple neck with a Jatoba fretboard ensures a balanced tone with a hint of snap.
The simplicity of the P/J pickup configuration, utilizing Ibanez's Dynamix pickups inspired by classic 60s and 70s passive electronics, adds a signature sound to this carefully crafted bass. The Talman series offers a unique blend of vintage vibes and modern comfort, making it a standout choice for bass enthusiasts.
