The TM1730M is a Talman series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in late 2015. It represents the reintroduction of the series which had been discontinued in 1998. It is made in Japan by FujiGen as part of the upscale Prestige line.
The headstock of the TM1730M features a straight-pull design, which allows the strings to come straight off the bone nut, thus eliminating the need for a string tree or a tilt-back design. The neck has a 12" (305mm) radius meaning it has a flatter fretboard which enhances the player's ability to bend notes and allows for a lower action.
The TM1730M features an alder body mated to a maple neck with a 22-fret maple fingerboard with dot inlays and a bone nut. Components include a retro-styled tremolo bridge, three Seymour Duncan single coil pickups and Gotoh locking tuners.
The TM1730 is the TM1730M's twin, except for its rosewood fretboard. The TM1730AHM is similar except that it has an ash body. The TM1702M is similar except for the fixed bridge and lack of the middle pickup. The TM1803M shares a 3-pickup configuration, but has a more novel control configuration than the TM1730M's typical 5-way toggle.
