The Ibanez Talman guitar was first made the iconic manufacturer in 1994. The series was discontinued in 1998, but high interest in the Ibanez Talman brought it back. Its maker, as a Japanese company begun in 1957, has been one of the few guitar makers outside of the United States and Europe to have a great impact in those areas.
This guitar series was originally made in both an acoustic and electric version. The current series has only electric versions, but there are many varieties of the guitars within the series. They do, however, all share some common properties.
The basic design has a double cutaway body, which you can get painted in a variety of colors. They generally have mahogany necks and rosewood fretboard and bridge. They also have the standard Ibanez chrome die-cast turners. They also use Ivorex II for the nut saddle. The Ivorex II has been found to be stronger than simple bone. A nut made with this material leads to clear highs and lows, making it a great guitar for amplification.
All the body styles in the modern series have set dimensions. The length of the guitar is eighteen inches. It has a width of fourteen inches, along with a depth of three and quarter inches. The body has been designed to combine both acoustic sounds with the upper fret access the hard rockers prefer.
These guitars also known for being lightweight, giving its users a high degree of mobility on stage. This guitar series was originally designed for indy rockers who needed a richness of sound, but also the ability to move around on stage.
The manufacturer still sells the Ibanez Talman directly to the public. However, you can also find different models at resellers and online. If you prefer the classic sensibility of the original series, than you might be able to find one for sale online as well.
