The TM303M is a Talman series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in late 2016.

As with the other Talman models, the headstock of the TM303M features a straight-pull design, which allows the strings to come straight off the nut, thus eliminating the need for a string tree or a tilt-back design. The neck has a 12" (305mm) radius meaning it has a flatter than normal fretboard which enhances the player's ability to bend notes and allows for a lower action.

The TM303M features an alder body with a black pickguard and a C-shaped maple neck with a 22-fret maple fingerboard with dot position markers and a bone nut. Components include a fixed bridge, locking tuners and three Ibanez single coil pickups with an individual volume control for the middle pickup.

The TM302M is a similar model with only two pickups. The TM330M is a similar model with a tremolo bridge.

The TM303M was available from August 2016.[1]
