The sound of an acoustic, the comfort (and looks) of an electric

Are you an electric guitar slinger looking to add acoustic to your tonal repertoire? We've got the perfect axe for you. The Ibanez Talman TCM50 is an acoustic-electric that sounds like an acoustic, but feels pretty much like what you're used to. With its unique double cutaway, the Talman gives you easy access to its upper frets (it's got 20 of 'em). the body dimensions - and even the 11.8" fingerboard radius - are designed to make for a seamless switchover from electric to the Talman. Lastly, the TCM50 sports a slightly oblong soundhole (adorned with Wooden Marquetry rosette) that gives the guitar a rad appearance that's sure to wow your fans.

Mahogany provides the perfect combination of warm tone and powerful projection

To give the Talman TCM50 acoustic-electric guitar maximum warmth and robust projection, Ibanez crafted its back and sides from mahogany. A gorgeous figured ash top adds some bite to your tone. Along with an Ivorex II nut and saddle, as well as a real rosewood bridge and fingerboard, the Ibanez Talman TCM50 gives you a full, satisfyingly balanced sound.

Great electronics with tone-shaping

The AEQ200MT preamp powers the tone of the Talman TCM50, and it's got bass and treble tone controls so you can fine-tune your tone.

Echoes in the Wind

I love this guitar! Love the sound quality and it is a beauty! What's not to like? It's a small instrument which is an absolute must for me, yet it has wonderful tone and by far unlike any other of my guitars. I would recommend it to anyone looking for these essentials, in a guitar. I'm enjoying it immensely!

Great Guitar

It sounds great the looks blow me away. I have only been playing for a year on electrics, this is my first Acoustic. it has really cleaned up my fretting. I think this will be a great Guitar for me or anyone wanting to look cool and not have to plug in.

Outstanding service

I could not be more pleased with the service I received. From initial contact to the tracking of my guitar. I received it in great shape and ready to go. The pictures I received prior to shipment was truely remarkable. Sweetwater is beyond all others and I highly recommend them. The instrument is great for a beginner like me and makes all the difference for my learning experience. The candy was also nice.

The picture of the guitar caught my eye, but the action on the guitar is the real value. Never played an Ibanez before, my brother has an Ibanez Bass, but I have always been a Fender man..think I found another guitar

Simply amazing, for someone like me

I am an "Electric guitar man," and I am worthless with acoustic one, but I did have to see what they mean by "Plays Almost Like Electric." Well, guess what. IT DOES. Don't expect to be able to bend the strings as much, after all, it only has 20 frets. Just plug it in and be amazed like me. OK now, does it play like acoustic unplugged ? Of course it does, just don't expect same sound projection you would get from big concert acoustic guitar. And, when it comes to guitar from SWEETWATER,COM, You can trust your Sales Engineer fully. Mine is Mark Bruhn, but I am sure they are all so good and nice to deal with. I have 12 guitars and most of them came from Sweetwater. The set up is always right on, fast shipping, and right prices too. On top of it all, I know exactly what I am getting, down to serial number, before I order.
