This previously owned Ibanez Talman TC-530 is in Excellent condition. The frets are in great shape with only minimal signs of flattening, 9 / 10 overall fret condition. The neck has some very shallow dings in its gloss finish that can barely even be seen / felt and do not affect playability. The pickup covers and bridge are lightly worn from normal use, evidence of normal pick wear but no signs of abuse. The body finish has a crack near arm playing position and one on the back near the backplate, but both are stable, barely visible, and can't be felt when playing. Plenty of buckle rash on the back, this guitar was loved plenty but never abused! Truss rod, tuners, hardware, and electronics are all in good working order. Hard case included!
The Ibanez Talman is an amazing bolt-on electric guitar with a unique vintage mojo! Built in Japan 1994-1995 with a beautifully figured birds-eye maple neck in a typical 'C' profile, this guitar almost feels like a mash-up between Fender and Danelectro. 3 lipstick tube pickups with a 5-way selector switch put this guitar safely in Strat territory. It's even equipped with a 2-point tremolo! Way cool, and WAY ahead of its time.
