Where Tradition and Innovation Meet

The Talman 1702AHM solidbody electric guitar delivers the accuracy and precision of Ibanez's Prestige line in a design that harks back to some of the most sought-after vintage guitars of all time. A bolt-on maple neck joins an ash body for snap and clarity, with Seymour Duncan Alnico II Pro single-coil pickups to generate the warmth and twang of classic American guitars. The 1702AHM boasts Prestige appointments like flawlessly rounded fret edges and a flat 12" fretboard radius. The Talman 1702AHM electric guitar mixes Ibanez precision with classic American vibe.

Ibanez Talman 1702AHM Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Vintage-style construction
  • Seymour Duncan Alnico II Pro pickups
  • Prestige look and playability
Vintage-style construction

The design of the Talman 1702AHM is a direct throwback to the popular twang machines of yesteryear. The maple neck is bolted to a solid ash body, giving you a tonal balance that is a favorite with Sweetwater guitarists. The comfortable C-shaped neck boasts a modern 12" fretboard radius for wide bending. And the 6-saddle IFX-Pro bridge delivers precise intonation. This bridge design and the two Seymour Duncan Alnico II Pro single-coil pickups are responsible for the Talman Prestige's growling, twangy sound.

Seymour Duncan Alnico II Pro pickups

The Alnico II Pro single-coil pickups in the Talman 1702AHM are wound to deliver the low output, clarity, and snap that characterized the sound of country music in the '50s and '60s. Alnico II rod magnets soften the treble attack that leads to excessive high-end bite. And the bridge Alnico II Pro is reverse wound to provide hum cancellation when you use both pickups in the middle pickup selector position.

Prestige look and playability

Japanese-made Ibanez Prestige instruments are constructed with three principles in mind: precision, performance, and playability. Ibanez's high-tech manufacturing process uses old-world Japanese craftsmanship to deliver on these goals. The Talman 1702AHM joins this lineage, giving you flawless fretwork, rounded fret edges, and a comfortably shaped neck. The Prestige line of electric guitars and basses offer you Ibanez's top-of-the-line features, craftsmanship, and tonality.

Ibanez Talman 1702AHM Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Vintage-style electric guitar
  • Ash body and maple neck for clarity and snap
  • Two Alnico II Pro single-coil pickups
  • Classic-Plus neck with a C profile
