Ibanez TMB605 Talman 5-String Electric BassIbanez
Step up to the great retro looks and exciting tones of the Ibanez TMB605 Talman Bass, with its warm and punchy ash body and solid-playing maple neck with bound jatoba fretboard. A pair of Carey Nordstrand-licensed pickups gives the Talman Bass classic American tones on steroids, with a J-style bridge pickup for smooth and woody lead work and a split P-style neck pickup for meaty picked tones and powerful low end. Custom electronics with a bypassable 2-band EQ give the Talman further sound-shaping potential. Bassists from all around stand behind the Ibanez TMB605 Talman Bass for its great looks and pioneering tones at an intermediate price.
Condition: When this guitar came in from the factory, the authorized refurbisher couldn't find anything wrong with it. No repairs or modifications were made to the guitar - they simply gave it a set-up and left it alone. The guitar looks mint. When we received the guitar, we set the action at the 12th fret to 4/64" on both the bass and treble sides. The bass plays great with this low-action set-up! All electronics are in perfect working order. Back of the headstock is NOT stamped "used", but the original serial # has been replaced with a new one.

About our set-ups: We do our best to accurately describe the current set-up and playability of each guitar. However, due to temperature and humidity changes the guitar may experience while in transit, it's possible for the neck and body to slightly "adjust" along the way. After all, guitars are primarily wooden instruments that are highly susceptible to their environment. By the time you receive the guitar, un-box it and tune it up, you may find that it needs a slight adjustment to get it back to the set-up specs that we originally described in our listing. Please keep this in mind before purchasing.
