The TM1730 is a Talman series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in mid 2015. It represents the reintroduction of the series which had been discontinued in 1998. It was made in Japan by FujiGen as part of the Prestige line.
The TM1730 has an alder body bolted to a C-shaped maple neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with white dot position markers. Components include an ITL-PRO retro-styled synchronized tremolo bridge, three Seymour Duncan Five-Two single coil pickups mounted in a white pickguard, a bone nut and Gotoh locking tuning machines.
The headstock of the TM1730 features a straight-pull design, which allows the strings to come straight off the bone nut, thus eliminating the need for a string tree or a tilt-back design. The fretboard has a 12" (305mm) radius meaning it is flatter compared to traditional styled guitars from other brands which enhances the player's ability to bend notes and allows for a lower string action. The Fast Action neck joint improves access to the upper frets.
The TM1730P is a similar model with a pearloid pickguard. The TM1730M is another similar model with a maple fretboard. The TM1702 is a related model with a fixed bridge and no middle pickup.
The TM1730 was discontinued after 2017 along with all of the Talman models in the Prestige line.
