The TM1702P features an alder body bolted to a C-shaped maple neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with dot position markers. Components include a retro-style fixed bridge, dual Seymour Duncan Alnico Pro II single coil pickups mounted in a pearloid pickguard, a bone nut and Gotoh locking tuning machines.
The headstock of the TM1702P features a straight-pull design, which allows the strings to come straight off the bone nut, eliminating the need for a string tree or a tilt-back design. The fretboard has a 12" (305mm) radius meaning it is flatter compared to traditional styled guitars from other brands which enhances the player's ability to bend notes and allows for a lower string action. The Fast Action neck joint improves access to the upper frets.
The TM1702 is a very similar model with a white pickguard. The TM1730P is a related model which adds a third pickup and a tremolo bridge.
The TM1702P was discontinued after 2017 along with all of the Talman models in the Prestige line.
