sweet step up

By babs

Comments about Ibanez Talman TCY20 Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I got a used Dean Playmate dreadnought. It doesn?t have a cutaway and the body feels huge and awkward, so I decided to find something better & to get an acoustic/electric to open up my options a little. I looked at the Ovation and Takamine acoustic/electric guitars in a similar price range. The Ovation body felt great but the sound unplugged was barely audible. Takamine had better acoustic sound, but the body wasn't as comfortable for me. The Guitar Center didn?t have the TCY20 in stock, so I found it at a competitor. I have to say: the action is surprisingly easy, it?s lightweight, the body is slim, and the neck is narrower than my Dean. All in all, it feels great. The sound is a little light unplugged given the slimmer body but not completely inaudible. And I got a Vox portable amp for it ? and when it?s plugged in it sounds WAY bigger than it is. The only drawback? the nut has to be adjusted ? annoying, but not horrible. It would have been nice if it had an onboard tuner. I am really happy with this purchase?I love it?s size, cutaways, weight, and sound. I really don?t think I?ll need another step up for a few years. It?s a great deal for the price range, beautiful to look at, and I couldn?t be happier.

Wow.

Comments about Ibanez Talman TCY20 Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Most people tend to dismiss a piece due to it's attractive pricetag. And normally they're right to follow their gut. But not here. You get MORE then what you pay for. Being just a recreational musician, I still never felt fully comfortable with a big baby or dreadnought acoustic. I could play them, just wasn't too comfortable. The TCY20 solves that problem. A slim slender attractive body with a very slim neck, you almost forget you're playing an acoustic. It has a darker deeper resonance as well, which I kind of prefer. Plug it in, and this baby does more then purr but roars quite well. Being small it's not as loud on it's own but can still fill a room nicely, but if you're gonna gig, plug it in and you'll have no problems. And it's a beautiful guitar to look at which a very nice finish. I purchased the vintage violin and I'm very happy with this purchase. Only gripes would be that some parts are plastic but for the price it's fine, you can always customise on your own. And the action seems just a tad high, least for my taste but it's a standard height and easily remedied.

Great beater acoustic.

By Klisk

from NJ

Comments about Ibanez Talman TCY20 Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This acoustic is a great beater. I can toss it around my room, carry it anywhere I want, practice and play. The sound (unplugged) is very quiet and boxy. But not bad at all. Actually, it's perfect for practicing or that tinny Ovation sound! It shines plugged, though. Sounds like a full jumbo Martin. Awesome tone. So not only can you drag it around unplugged, but once you're in the studio you can plug it in and have a comfy toneful playing experience. It's great for recording due to how great the built-in piezo's sound. It stays in tune, I should note. The finish is gorgeous. The ONLY "flaw" is that it isn't as "full" as a normal acoustic when UNPLUGGED. So acoustic purists beware. For the rest of us, especially people who love to plug in record, this amazing.

Ibanez Talman

Comments about Ibanez Talman TCY20 Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I've owned this guitar for about 3 weeks and played a gig with it. I love the body size and the action seems pretty good. I wish that it had an onboard tuner but overall it is a good value.

Flawed Bridge

By John P.

from Columbus, OH

Comments about Ibanez Talman TCY20 Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I bought an Ibanez Talman because it had the nice feel and tone I was looking for. After 5 years, the bridge started separating from the body and needed a reset. My luthier said the bridge was factory glued over the finish and not to the wood (as it should be). The repair was $120.00, which is over half the price I paid for the instrument brand new. I still felt the guitar was worth saving, but don't fool yourself thinking Ibanez makes a high quality instrument... You get what you pay for.
