The TMB2000 is a Talman Bass series solid body electric bass model introduced by Ibanez in 2016. It is made in Japan by FujiGen as part of the upscale Prestige line.

The TMB2000 features an asymmetric double-cutaway ash body bolted to a maple neck with a 20-fret rosewood fingerboard with binding and acrylic block position markers. Components include a pair of custom Nordstrand passive pickups mounted in a tortoise pickguard with a Jazz pickup at the neck and a Precision pickup at the bridge, an Ibanez custom preamp with a bypassable two-band EQ, a Gotoh bridge with 19mm string spacing, a plastic nut and Gotoh tuning machines.

For 2017 the body species was changed to alder.

The TMB2000 was discontinued in early 2019.
