You've noticed by now that we at Ibanez hold a studious respect for tradition. That said, every now and then you have to hang a right where everyone else is turning left. The double-cutaway Talman is our rebel with a cause. Electric players looking to add an acoustic-guitar dimension to their arsenal go headover- heels for this distinctive hybrid.
- Okoume neck

- Purpleheart fretboard

- Spruce top
Spruce remains the most popular wood for acoustic guitar tops, mainly due to its pristine tonal clarity.
- Sapele back and sides

- Ibanez T-bar Undersaddle pickup
The Ibanez T-bar Undersaddle pickup accurately translates that full sound to whatever amplification system you plug it into.
- Ibanez AEQ-2T preamp w/Onboard tuner
AEQ-2T preamp is specifically-designed to adjust the frequencies of a bass and allows operation of the built-in tuner without the instrument being plugged in.
- Purpleheart bridge
The Purpleheart bridge transfers string vibration directly to the body, delivering a natural and warm tone.
- Ibanez Advantage™ bridge pins
These pins really are an advantage over old-fashioned pins. Advantage™ pins are easier to take out and easier to put in than standard pins. A special bulb-shaped end makes the pin easy to grip and also prevents the pin from being pushed in too far. Best of all, with Advantage™ the pin and string stay put.
