Special Order

Where Tradition and Innovation Meet

The Talman 1730M solidbody electric guitar delivers the accuracy and precision of Ibanez's Prestige line, in a guitar design that harkens back to some of the most sought after vintage guitars of all time. The bolt-on maple neck joins an alder body for added snap and clarity. Seymour Duncan Five-Two single-coil pickups generate sweet high frequencies with tight low end. And the 1730M boasts Prestige appointments like flawlessly rounded fret edges and a flat 12" fretboard radius. The Talman 1730M electric guitar mixes Ibanez precision with vintage vibe.

Ibanez Talman 1730M Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Vintage-style construction
  • Seymour Duncan Five-Two pickups
  • Prestige
Vintage-style construction

The design of the Talman 1730M is a direct throwback to the popular single-coil-loaded machines of yesteryear. The maple neck is bolted to a solid alder 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 ITL-Pro tremolo bridge offers exact intonation and effortless pitch control. This bridge design and the three Seymour Duncan Five-Two single-coil pickups are responsible for the guitar's spanky, full tone.

Seymour Duncan Five-Two pickups

The Five-Two single-coil pickups in the Talman 1730M are wound to deliver the low output, clarity, and snap that characterizes the sounds of country, blues, rock and surf. But the mix of Alnico 2 and Alnico V rod magnets soften the treble attack, avoiding excessive high-end bite, and keep the low end crisp, clear, and tight. And the middle Five-Two single-coil is reverse wound to offer you hum cancellation and that great out-of-phase cluck.


The Japanese-made Prestige instruments are constructed with three principles in mind: precision, performance, and playability. The high-tech manufacturing process also uses old-world Japanese craftsmanship to deliver on these goals. The Talman 1730M joins this lineage, giving you flawless fretwork, rounded fret edges, and comfortably shaped necks. These instruments come from the same minds that brought you such guitars as the iconic RG and S models. The Prestige line of electric guitars and basses offer you Ibanez's top-of-the-line features, craftsmanship, and tonality.

Sweetwater Advice

Ibanez Talman Prestige 1730M

With a '65 Twin Reverb reissue dialed up clean, the Seymour Duncan Five-Two pickups were clear and bell-like. The alnico 2 and 5 magnets conspired to deliver snappy bass response, with a slightly tame and tethered but clear treble from the high strings. Paired with the Twin Reverb, the Talman dished up a punchy flavor fit for the Stones heartier blues entrees....
