The TMB100 is a Talman Bass series solid body electric bass model introduced by Ibanez in 2015. It is made in Indonesia as part of the standard line.
The TMB100 features an asymmetric double-cutaway mahogany body bolted to a maple neck with a 20-fret rosewood fingerboard with white dot position markers.

For 2018 the rosewood fretboard was replaced with jatoba and the body material was changed from mahogany to poplar.
