Ibanez Talman Prestige Japan TM1803M Tri-Fade Burst Electric Guitar w/ Case
Ibanez Talman Prestige TM1803M Tri-Fade Burst Electric Guitar w/ Case
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.
A distinct Ibanez asset is its flatter fretboard radiusa 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
