Overview

While Talman basses normally have the more common 34” “long-scale” neck, the TMB30 offers a “short-scale” 30” neck. The shorter neck is often preferred by players of smaller stature who find a long-scale instrument to be unwieldy. It is also a favorite of guitarists who double on bass— the shorter scale having a feel closer to that of an electric guitar.

The TMB30 features include a Mahogany body for a warm, punchy tone, a Maple neck with Rosewood fretboard, a Standard bridge, and a black pickguard to complete the classic vibe. Electronics consist of an Ibanez Dynamix P neck pickup and a Dynamix J bridge pickup for that rich, vintage sound.

    Comments about Ibanez TMB30 Electric Bass:

    I play short scale basses almost exclusively. I've been looking for a while to find an inexpensive SS bass with a common pick up configuration for touring so i wouldn't be afraid of banging around a bit. The TMB 30 is exactly what i was looking for. Looks good, plays better, and the pups aren't bad but i did swap the jazz pup for a duncan because thats what i normally play, although it really did have a good sound stock. These are the absolute best option if you like short scale basses, i don't know why these aren't insanely popular.

    Comments about Ibanez TMB30 Electric Bass:

    I originally bought a Yamaha TRBX174 and long scale was too difficult for me, so opted for this short scale bass. I have small hands and arthritis and it was difficult for me to play that behemoth. I'm a beginner and this guitar suits me. I'm sure I'll move up in the future because I'm having so much fun learning this instrument. I didn't expect much for a guitar under ($200.00) But once I get a little more experience behind me? All I can say is Victor Wooten, Marcus Miller, Stanley Clark, you have nothing to worry about. lol
