More about the Talman series


The Talman series is a line of electric (and later acoustic) guitar models produced by Hoshino Gakki and sold under the Ibanez brand. The first Talman models were introduced in 1994.

The series is inspired by vintage guitars such as Fender Telecasters and Danelectros. The Talman body has a shape similar to the vintage Telecaster. In keeping with the Tele tradition, Talman models feature primarily single-coil pickups although some models with humbucking pickups were produced. Many models have lipstick-style pickups which were popularized by Danelectro. The Talman series has been described as "a simple, no-frills, ready-for-just-about-any-gig guitar with easy-to-reach controls, a fast neck, and diverse sounds."[1] Ibanez used the tagline "the Classic Alternative" in marketing the Talman series.[2]

The series was introduced in 1994 and was discontinued after 1998, except for a Paul Gilbert signature model, the PGM900, which was available through 1999. The Talman brand was revived in a small way in 2003 with a new signature model for Noodles Wasserman, the NDM1. A series of Noodles signature models where the only Talman solid body guitars available from 2003 through 2014. They were joined be a new generation of non-Signature Talman models in 2015. The Talman name has been (and continues to be) applied to a line of acoustic guitars which have a body shape vaguely similar to that of the Talman solid body. (more...)
