Overall: I've had this for a few months now. I've been nothing but pleased with it. It plays and sounds good. I have been playing 17 years and use multiple techniques. Now is it as good as a higher end bass no. It however is gig worthy. Plus it's just sexy. Got so many compliments on the sound and appearance.

Overall: Wanted a low-priced but good bass guitar for home practice. The Ibanez TMB100 Talman delivered in spades! I've gigged with this bass guitar because it's incredible, especially for the price. I didn't even need to set it up. It played perfectly right out of the box. And the tone and ease of play are mind blowing. No annoying rattles, buzzes, or dead spots like some cheap guitars. And I think it looks totally cool in mint green with the tortoise shell pickguard. People at performances have been surprised by the price after seeing and hearing it. I'm sure that at least a couple went out and bought one for themselves. I bought both this bass guitar and a Peavey home practice bass amp and the two fit like hand in glove. They sound so good together that I've also used the amplifier at gigs. But I won't name the amp since this review is about the guitar. Read the features and look at it, anyone who knows guitars will be impressed. Try one out at a local store if they have one because you'll be surprised by its feel and punchy tone, plus the range of tones with the control options. Highly recommended. Great work by Ibanez.

Overall: This was the very first bass I purchased, only having played for about three months. The price was the factor that led me to purchasing it. While playing it at an open mic, I was surprise when my friend who is classically trained in music asked to play on it because of the tone and feel of the instrument. Once you pick this bass up you will question the decision to pay for a bass that’s more expensive. This all happened with the stock pickups.
