Ibanez Prestige TM1803M Talman Electric GuitarIbanez
Nothing speaks to the passion and pride of Ibanez luthiery more than the Prestige designation. Now the skilled craftsman of the Prestige team have 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 '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 TM1803M Prestige is a double cutaway electric, built to deliver the distinctive twang and bite of a traditional double single coil guitar, but also incorporates a third, middle position pickup for the ultimate in tonal versatility. Add modern design concepts typically found only on other brands Deluxe or boutique editions, along with Ibanez innovation and superior craftsmanship and youve got an instrument thats second-to-none in quality, tone and performance.
The TM1803M begins with a curvy, traditionally styled Talman Alder body for a strong, full sound with beefy lows and sizzling 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 bright, clean sounding Maple fretboard is where modern innovation takes over.
