The TM71 is an Artcore series hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 2002. It was made in China.

The TM71 has a semi-hollow body with an off-set, single-cutaway shape inspired by the Talman series solid body guitars. It features an arched, laminated maple top with a single ƒ hole and ivory multi-binding on maple back and sides mated to a set-in mahogany neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with ivory binding and white dot position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez Artcore humbucking pickups with chrome covers mounted in black plastic pickup rings, an ART-1 Tune-o-matic style bridge with a Quik Change tailpiece, a plastic nut, black speed knobs, and Ibanez tuning machines with half moon buttons.

The TM71T is a similar model with a vintage vibrato. The TM81 is a related model with a flamed sycamore body, different fretboard inlays and gold knobs.

This TM71 was discontinued after 2003. The somewhat similar TXD71 was introduced in 2003.
