The Ibanez Talman TM302 is a perfect starter's guitar and more! Getting around with the TM302 is pretty much a straight forward thing. Double cutaway Alder body, 2 passive custom vintage single coil pickups and a standard 3-way switch will get you all that you need. Thanks to the comfortable neck shape and classic, no hassle 3-way pickup configuration, we found the Ibanez TM302 a great candidate for those who make their way into the guitar world and want to start/move playing the electric guitar. It's not a heavy guitar, but has the right weight, so playing using a strap is quite nice actually and the medium fret size makes it easy to fiddle around with string bending and more complex chords.Sound wise it's more than we hoped for, check out the demos.
The Artcore Vintage AMV10A has sound and looks one can hardly expect to get at such price point. The demand for relic guitars is constantly growing, musicians want guitars that sound a look rock 'n' roll (and who can blame them). The thing is, good relic takes time and raises the price of the instrument. Ibanez has been innovative forever and came again to the rescue with the Artcore Vintage Series. The AMV10A comes in a beautiful, nicely relic'd tobacco burst low gloss finish and worn hardware which gives the guitar a well played guitar look. The sound is no different, the Ibanez AMV10A fits Jazz, Rock and just about any style you would like to play thanks to the fat sounding Custom Elite pickups. We also appreciate the Quik Change III tailpiece Ibanez equip the AMV10A with, as it is both good looking and makes string changing as easy as it gets.
