Ibanez TM1803M Prestige Talman

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 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 Ibanez 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 you've got an instrument that's 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 50's and 60's, but its bright, clean sounding Maple fretboard is where modern innovation takes over. A distinct Ibanez asset is its flatter fretboard radius--a feature more conducive to the techniques of modern guitarists, as well as being a friendlier surface for slide players. A bone nut helps achieve superior tone and sustain, while still another Ibanez advantage comes from its smooth contoured Fast Access neck joint, which provides unfettered access to even the highest frets.

Hardware includes an IFX-PRO fixed bridge, equipped with six individual string saddles for superior intonation, and Gotoh locking machine heads for absolute tuning stability. The TM1803M features Seymour Duncan Alnico II Pro pickups in the neck and bridge positions, and a Seymour Duncan Vintage Flat single coil in the middle-position, capable of introducing clean, sparkling chime, or classic quack-like "ducky" tone. Equipped with a separate volume control, the Vintage Flat can easily be blended into the mix with the bridge and neck position pickups to create an even wider possible tonal spectrum. Run through a 3-way selector switch, this combination of warm, moderate-output, single coil pickups are extremely versatile, excellent for country, pop, blues, or classic rock. Players who derive their distortion from an amp will appreciate the versatility and responsiveness these pickups offer--back off on the volume and you'll find your sound transforming from a snarling bite to a clean, singing tone with softer attack. The TM1803M comes with its own hardshell case. No matter what style you're playing, the TM1803M will deliver the tones you know and love in an instrument that reflects the evolution of the modern player.
