Overview

Nothing speaks to the passion and pride of Ibanez luthiery more than the Prestige designation. Now the skilled craftsman of the Prestige team have reached back in time to resurrect one of its most requested guitar models of the past two decades. And while true to the original of the early '90s, today’s Talman brings with it a familiar, yet fresh sound that places it squarely at the crossroads of modern Ibanez innovation and cherished traditional tone.

The TM1702AHM 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 number of modern design concepts typically found only on other brands’ “Deluxe” or boutique editions. Factor in Ibanez innovation and superior craftsmanship and you’ve got an instrument that’s second-to-none in quality, tone and performance.
 
The TM1702AHM begins with a curvy, traditionally styled Talman Ash body for a strong, full sound with tight lows and crispy 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 radius—a 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 TM1702AHM features Seymour Duncan Alnico II Pro pickups, known for their uncanny sweet, classic tone and great sustain. Run through a 3-way selector switch, these warm, single coils are excellent for country, pop, blues or classic rock. Players who derive their distortion from an amp will appreciate the versatility and responsiveness these pickups offer—back off on the volume and transform your sound from a snarling bite to clean, singing tone with softer attack. The TM1702AHM comes with its own hardshell case.

      Comments about Ibanez Talman Prestige Series TM1702AHM Electric Guitar:

      For less than the price of an Am Std Tele, you get features more on par w/an Am Deluxe. Very lightweight/resonant swamp ash body, Seymour Duncan Alnico II Pro pickups, and excellent quality hardware including nice, straight pull locking tuners. The guitar sounds outstanding & is extremely comfortable to play. All I had to do is restring with me lighter gauge strings (yes, I'm a wuss ;)) and set the intonation...bam! A key instrument in my arsenal.
