The TC830FM is a Talman series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1995. The model was referred to in the US as simply the TC830. It was produced in Japan by FujiGen.

The Talman series is a line of retro-styled guitars reminiscent of the Fender Telecaster or Jaguar.

Th TC830FM features a flame maple top on an alder body bolted to a maple neck with a 22-fret maple fingerboard with black dot position markers. Components include three Sky lipstick-style pickguard-mounted single coil pickups mounted in a cream pearloid pickguard and a TT50 synchronized tremolo bridge.

The TC820FM is a similar model with dual soapbar-style humbucking pickups. The TC730F is a similar model with a chambered (semi-hollow) body and a fixed bridge. The TC930 is a related model with a mahogany body and ebony fretboard.

The TC830FM was discontinued after 1996.
