I wanted a small acoustic electric guitar to plug in and play. I have a large dreadnought, an electric and a baritone ukulele. I play the bari uke all of the time because it fits in my arms so well (and the sound is so beautiful too). I'm a woman with a smallish stature and find my dreadnought pretty unwieldy to play. I wanted to get back to playing 6 strings! So I began my search thinking I should buy a 3/4 travel guitar but my eyes landed on the Fender Stratacoustic. I really liked the look of it but couldn't stand the sound or the fiberglass back and sides. I finally laid my eyes on the Blue Ibanez TCY10. I liked the look of it and it sounded better than the Stratacoustic and for the price I thought I should at least give it a try. After speaking with the guy at GC, I learned there were other colors available. I chose to have the white one delivered directly to me. It arrived and I find that the white one has sparkles in the paint, which I loved. But I also noticed that the black body binding is not actual body binding but painted on! Cheap looking, and it just looked bad! The body and sides were not lined up and put together well. I know it's made in China, but come on! It sounded alright but there was a ton of fret buzz so I took it to my luthier where they told me that the neck is so warped that a fret dressing would not even help this guitar. They deemed it unplayable. I took it back to GC and no more white ones were available but I didn't want black or blue either. I decided to try the next model up and exchanged the TCY10 for the TCY20. (Perhaps it would be put together better?) I had them mail me the Vintage Violin color (which was much more reddish than tan from what I gathered from the pictures on their website) and I was still not 100% satisfied with the sound, it was just not as warm as I would have liked. I know I shouldn't expect much from the little money I paid but I really loved the look and the size of the Talman and wanted to see if there were other models out there. So I began researching on the internet and that's when I heard about the TCM50 on a discussion board about the Piezo Pickup vs. the AP2 Magnetic Soundhole Pickup. I went back to GC and the guy I spoke to said the Magnetic pickup is definitely warmer than the Piezo. So I ordered it, crossed my fingers and got it last week. It sounded so much nicer and much warmer even with the stock Ibanez strings! I took it down to my luthier where he "wowed" at the look of the ash top. He lowered the action a bit by lowering just the nut and he put Martin SP Phosphor Bronze Light strings on it. It sounds absolutely beautiful!! He even said that it was a really nice guitar for the price I paid for it! Obviously it's not a large booming sound but I don't expect that from such a small body. It feels great in my arms and is much more easy to play than my large dreadnought. It's light to hold but not too light or cheap feeling like the TCY10. The TCM50 feels solid!!! Through the amp it sounds amazing, like a large acoustic. I highly recommend the Phosphor Bronze strings, it makes the guitar sound very professional, again like I paid a lot more money for it than I did. So if you can't decide between TCY20 or the TCM50, definitely get the Talman TCM50!

I bought this sight unseen,,,,pics of it looked cool. I had jacked with some other thin bodies but the price was too high, so i ordered the talman TCM50. I did like the magnetic pickup. I kept it from getting that "tin" sound. I wanted an acoustic that felt similar to and played like an electric,,,,,this guitar has not done that for me. I find it burdensome to play live due the feed back i cant seem to get rid of. The sound wasn't anything special when it didnt feedback. The price of this guitar is the only attraction. I'm no expert, but I think I'll cut bait with this guitar.

I love this guitar!

By gibsonkid

from Brunswick,GA

Comments about Ibanez Talman TCM50 Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I had been play guitar for about two years but all I had was a electric guitar. So I stared looking for a acoustic-electric but I didn't want to get a standard size acoustic b/c they are to big. And then I saw the Ibanez Talman TCM50 Acoustic-Electric Guitar at a music store and I loved it so i got it. The Ibanez Talman TCM50 Acoustic-Electric Guitar is the best for the electric guitar player. It also has a great sound. Thanks Ibanez!

Better Than it Ought To Be

By Bobbyvee1

from Las Vegas, NV

Comments about Ibanez Talman TCM50 Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This is an amazing little guitar. Unplugged, it has just enough volume to satisfy, yet I can play hard in my apartment late at night with no worries. The sound just seems to stop a few feet away instead of carrying. Plugged in to my amp ( Tech 21 Trademark30) I get excellent clean sounds that are much more "acoustic" than I ever expected-very nice. Cranked, I get some very unique and powerful rock & blues tones that can keep up with no shame or embarrassment. I've owned & played Ovations & other thin-body acoustic-elect. and this stands out as a clear champion. Playability is amazing. I constantly have to slow myself down to play my normal acoustic styl, because this neck just wants to be played,hard & fast. A great, fun, unique, affordable guitar.

CHOCTALMAN

By Smurff Poppodoppolus

from D'iberville, MS

Comments about Ibanez Talman TCM50 Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

That is what I named it. It has been one of the most fun guitars I have ever owned. I own a Roland Cube and I never have any problems with feed back nor do I have any complications with sound quality. I can go from jazz soloing to funky grooves with no problem on this baby. I play it any where and everywhere. Keep it up IBANEZ!!!

The best Guitar for your livingroom

By Mike

from Newtown, Pa

Comments about Ibanez Talman TCM50 Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I couldn't have designed a better guitar for leaving in your livingroom. Very playable, nice feel, and sound is decent (better in amp). I have more expensive guitars but this is the one I pick up and play most often. 5 stars for a livingroom guitar.

Very Nice,... BUT!

By Adam Hughes

from Knoxville, Tn

Comments about Ibanez Talman TCM50 Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

yes ,there is a big hairy BUT around the corner in my experience. I've owned this guitar for 2 years now, and this is a great sounding guitar, and the action on the neck is very good if you want an electric guitar feel with the acoustic sound. However, I've taken this to my local Guitar Center to have it to have a buzz on the 2nd (A) string in the lower neck fixed, but they can't seem to get the buzz out. :/ thought about contacting Ibanez but don't want to deal with the BS. Either way, I love the way this guitar feels when holding it and it is very versatile.
