5.0 out of 5 stars | it rocks, great bargain
Color: Tri Fade Burst
Your browser does not support HTML5 video. I got the talman tmb100 in tfb in the mail yesterday... It was set up nice and intonation was perfect.. I raised the action by taking out the truss just an 1/8 of a turn and wow this thing rocks... the pickups are a little weak. mainly the jazz pickup it has lower output than the P pickup but works well in the blend middle setting I did a sound test video... the body is a three piece mahogany and looks good with the grain all going the same way in the tfb.... and I love the tort pickguard!!! the neck is nice and chunky and comfortable not a thin weird neck like on some basses... the strings are a good quality taperwound I think they are elixir I don't know if there coated tho... Nice bass, my other bass a Ibanez btb 6 string. I own a 3/4 double bass also but I was looking to fill my void of I nice 4 string with a low price tag and I found it!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars | Wish I could give more stars
Color: Mint Green
I read a few negative things about the setup of this bass, and either they were unlucky or the seller stepped up their game. This thing came out of the box already tuned and the bridge setup was super low and crunchy just how I like. The neck has a nice satin finish so it’s easy to slide up and down as you please. Fairly wide neck, but not too wide. It’s comfortable and i have medium sized hands. The action feels pretty good too. If your bass doesn’t come set up as good as mine, don’t get upset. With a little tweaking, this baby has the potential to make you think twice about throwing down a grand on a high end bass. I was expecting a lot less for this price but I was very surprised at how much nicer this thing is than some of the higher end basses I’ve played. The range of tones you can get out of this thing is insane. I’d recommend this bass to anyone looking for that newest addition to their collection weather they are just starting out or have been playing for years.

3.0 out of 5 stars | Fun and versatile, great value, fragile tone knob, neck dive
Color: Mint Green
I'm new to the bass and still so far have sort of a casual attitude about it compared to the guitar, so there's not much I can say comparing it to anything else or to the expectations of an experienced or serious bassist. But I do very much enjoy this thing. Sounds fine to me, feels fine, looks all right (the teal is not quite as vibrant in person as I imagined but I still like it). Just a couple of construction issues similar to ones I've seen in other reviews. The tone knob (which is two-in-one, an outer ring around an inner knob that each turn independently) has already begun to have the problem with the outer ring, it sort of comes detached and you can feel that it's loose and doesn't take effect, and I have to fiddle with it to get it to reengage with whatever internal part is is supposed to control, but it gives a feeling like doing so might be causing more damage. I'm worried it will soon fail entirely and I'll be stuck with a certain tone. Also, one of the screws holding on the cover for the 9V battery compartment in the back (for the active pickups) was stripped right out of the box. Fortunately the battery fits snugly so I just don't even use the cover. EDIT: Turns out guitars are not supposed to have neck dive. This one does. If I don't support it with my hands while having it hang on me with the strap, the neck dives towards the floor. It has become a problem, I am dealing with carpal tunnel syndrome and the extra muscling I need to perform with my left hand/arm to keep the thing in a playable position is probably part of the problem.

5.0 out of 5 stars | a great buy
Color: Mustard Yellow Flat
i will be blunt: this thing is on the heavy side. not exactly like an ash body, but enough to let you know it's there with you. another thing: i did not realize this instrument has active pickups. give me 3 knobs on a bass without the actives and i'm as happy as a pig in poo. last thing: it's 25 frets, which isn't bad. i'm use to the 3rd octave at the tailpiece to doodle around on. something i first noticed was the sustain. something i had not gotten with cheap basses over the years. i prefer to put flat wound strings on (almost) all of my basses. i was in a Guitar Center or some such a few years ago, picked up a bass with flats on it, and i instantly fell in love with how they felt on my fingers. i like to say flats make my fingers glued/attached to the strings. some rounds have my fingers sliding off when i sweat profusely. flats don't do that. overall, not a bad bass for the price. it sounds and feels nice.

4.0 out of 5 stars | Great bass lousy packaging
This is a great bass and I purchased it to leave at rehearsal and keep my expensive bass at home. It was recommended by Johnny Lee Long on YouTube a great bass player, teacher and Luthie I only took off 1 start because the packaging was not adequate and a tuning key was damaged. I repaired it myself but will contact Ibanez for a replacement key. Don't let the low price fool you. Put new strings and make a few adjustments and this bass can hang with my $2,000 bass.

3.0 out of 5 stars | Just ok
Color: Mint Green
With all the positive reviews I expected better. It’s not a terrible instrument, but it buzzes like crazy. The neck doesn’t fit flat at the body join, there’s an almost 1/16 inch gap, probably because they didn’t drill the mounting hole deep enough into the neck (update: they never cleared the wood chips that accumulated when they drilled the holes, fixed the buzz by a lot). Also the nut was cut to low so I needed to make a new one. As mentioned in the Q and A, the knob closest to the input jack is loose/defective. I’ve heard to many comments about this to believe it’s only prominent to a few instruments. Last, the pickups are active, which they do not say, so get a bunch of 9 volt batteries, you’ll need to change these every week or so I’ve heard nothing but positive reviews about Ibanez and this bass in particular, but personally, I would definitely recommend looking for another instrument if you can afford it.

Color: Mint Green
For $200 you get a great looking easy to play bass that also sounds good. I'm not a bass player, I just purchased it for recording purposes and it does what its supposed to do.
