Ibanez Product Overview
The Talman bass series combines the re-emergence of a historic Ibanez body shape with powerful genre-hopping versatility and great retro looks. Ibanez is pleased to introduce another attractive model from the Talman series line.
The solid ash body features tonal clarity and a superior attack. It also has Nordstrand CND pickups in a classic P/J combination, a versatile setup almost indispensable for the working musician. The model is able to get a killer P tone from the P-style pickup, deep and wide with a ton of punch. Additionally, the single coil bridge pickup brings the famous J players sound. With the pre-amp’s flexibility, you can get a massive modern sound that will go from slappy deep R&B to raging metal.
The Ibanez Custom Electronics 2-band EQ with an EQ bypass slide switch greatly helps players explore more tonal options and answers bassists requirements.

Really nicely finished bass. Pretty well set up out of the box too. The only issue I have is there are no instructions to tell you what the switch does and what the pots do. I can work it out by trial and error but some hints and advice on how to get the best out of it wouldn't go amiss. As a total novice I could use some more instruction. At least the instructions explain how to adjust the truss rod etc.
