Ibanez is taking a page out of the old school with their new Talman Bass Series, consisting of the TMB300 and TMB100. The basses, which feature a retro aesthetic, share many of the same features with the 300 having an edge in features.
Both models are built with a mahogany body, maple neck, and rosewood fingerboard. The TMB300’s fingerboard is bound and set with acrylic block inlays while the TMB100 keeps it simple with dot inlays. Each version is fitted with a P/J pickup configuration. The TMB100 has an Ibanez DXP neck pickup and DXJ bridge pickup. The TMB300 has a DXP in the neck as well but steps things up with a DJ2 double J pickup in the bridge position. It also has a split coil switch to provide a single coil option in the bridge.
The Ibanez Talman Series basses are expected to ship in March. The TMB100 will carry a street price of $199 and the TMB300 will retail $299.
