  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

From Ibanez's Prestige team comes this addition to their Talman Prestige series, the TM1702M has an Alder body coated in a Tri Fade Burst finish and with a Maple neck and fingerboard to create those classic tones. With an IFX-PRO bridge, Gotoh locking machine heads, and Seymour Duncan Aklnico II Pro pickups, the TM1702M is an exceptionally crafted guitar that has the quality's of old Ibanez guitars with the craftsmanship of modern Ibanez guitars.

Alder Body with an IFX-PRO Fixed Bridge

Constructed from Alder for its body, the Talman produces a full-bodied tone that is strong enough to carry with it plenty of sustain. Delivering beefy mids, excellent lows and sizzling highs that aren't too harsh, the TM1702M is an excellent sounding guitar that brings with it the classic tones of early 90's Ibanez guitars with the innovations of modern models. Also situated on the body is the IFX-PRO bridge that brings with it exceptional intonations thanks to its six individual string saddles.

Talman Classic-Plus Maple Neck and Fingerboard

The Talman features a Maple neck and fingerboard to provide brightness to the guitars tone and cleans up some of it roughness, whilst adding sizzle to the highs and some firmness to the lows. With a Talman Classic-Plus "C" shape to help accommodate for sliding players and allows for a quicker playing style, the guitar also has a bone nut for some added sustain and a fast access neck joint to provide the ability to reach the higher frets with ease.

Seymour Duncan Pickups

The Ibanez features a pair of Seymour Duncan Alnico II Pro pickups, with one situated at the bridge and the other at the neck, to produce a classically sweet tone that has plenty off sustain. Even when subjugated to a distorted amp, the pickups are versatile enough to produce enough responsiveness to adjust the tone to something clean and with a softer attack. Along with the pickups comes controls to adjust the volume and tone and a 3-way selector switch to allows for either pickups to be used together or individually, making the TM1702M excellent for country, pop, blues or classic rock.

Now with a huge artist clientele across the globe Ibanez are a leading manufacturer of electric guitars and basses and a first choice for many dedicated musicians.
