Comments about Ibanez TCM50 Talman Acoustic Electric Guitar:

I have an older Talman TCY20 I "borrowed" from my wife. Same exact guitar almost, except it has a piezo under-saddle pickup. I was curious about the magnetic pickup in this one, so I played one at Sam Ash in San Antonio. Plugged it into an Ibanez Troubador T30 30w acoustic guitar amp. (You might not get very good results through a normal electric guitar amp. Use an acoustic amp, bass amp, or DI into the board or PA.) Sounds nice, rounder and warmer than the same guitar with a piezo, with none of that high scritchy crispy harshness. Compares favorably to similar guitars such as super-shallow Ovation/Applause models or the Fender Stratacoustic, Telecoustic, etc. This has a nice light mahogany neck. Don't get a guitar like this with a heavy maple neck like you'd find on a solid-body electric. The body is too light, and the headstock will always try to point at the floor. That's a pain, trust me. Not a problem on the Talmans. Well-balanced, and I'm amazed at how nicely appointed they are for cheap guitars, nice binding and finish all around. Of course, they are laminate, and not solid wood. So they are less toneful, but on the upside, much more robust and weatherproof. This is a great beater for live gigs, open mics, stuff like that. Unlike many cheap guitars, the truss rod on this one actually achieves something. The neck was out of whack on mine, and a luthier brought it right back. The only thing that would make it better would be to add an under-saddle pickup and a good preamp that loads it up properly and blends it with the magnetic pickup. Then this thing would be unstoppable. But it would cost a lot more. I also wish there were more colors to choose from. I'm sad that they discontinued the orange ones. But these are really great inexpensive working A/E guitars.
