Ibanez TCM50E Talman Slim Line Electro Acoustic, Vintage Brown Sunburst
Ibanez TCM50 Overview by GAK:
The Ibanez Talman has now earned the status of a modern classic! One of the few body styles that translates equally well to electric and acoustic guitars it not only looks cool but is a comfortable body shape to play. The TCM50 is rightly one of the most popular electro-acoustic guitars in its field. Featuring a slimline 3.5" depth the body is made from Mahogany for the back and sides and has a beautiful Figured Ash top with ivory binding. The neck is also Mahogany and has a slim, comfortable profile with a 10" radius Rosewood fingerboard.
Electronics-wise there's a neck single coil AP2 magnetic pickup which avoids the harshness you can sometimes find with undersaddle piezos and gives almost a hybrid electric/acoustic tone. There's an active preamp with bass & treble controls as well as a handy low battery indicator.

Great product, looks amazing and sound is excellent.
I can give only 4 stars. Is not been very good factory setup and action Can be easy change to lowest what I done quickly but this shulbe be done in first place. Still is little out tune on 12th fret not every strings and around 7 cent out when lowered saddle. I will look again with new string. Now good point: Is very light, I been use Les Paul so when delivery coming I been scary is empty box lol Looks OK for this price range and tune very well on chords also surprise sond very well acustic so is perfect guitar for home use not loud like full size. Another good things neck is like in electric guitar so will be more appropriate for previous electric user. Overall is quite good guitar for this price range.
Look great, sounds great through an amp. Factory set up though not so great,hence 4 stars. Action was way to high, had to shave loads of the bridge. ( it does come with a spare ) once done plays/sounds great.
Great little guitar very cheap from Gak
Great little guitar. Decent sound unplugged but really comes to life through an amp.
