The TM302PM is a Talman series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in mid 2016. It was produced in China.
The TM302PM features an alder body bolted to a maple neck with a 22-fret maple fingerboard with black dot position markers. Components include a Telecaster style fixed bridge with six independent saddles, dual Ibanez single coil pickups mounted in a pearloid pickguard, a bone nut and locking tuners.
The headstock of the TM302PM features a straight-pull design, which allows the strings to come straight off the bone nut, 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 compared to a standard square heel joint.
The TM302M (white pickguard) and TM302BM (black pickguard) are identical except for the color of the pickguard, knobs and finish. The TM302 is another similar model with a rosewood fretboard. The TM303M adds a third pickup.
The TM302PM was available from August 2016. It was discontinued along with the entire Talman solid body guitar line after 2018.
