T+S+M/J = Magic

Paulyboo, 26.09.2017
The most interesting model in the Talman range.
A T-style with some S-config in a Musty-ish-Jag-ish-type body. A fusion of designs that works in the normally reserved world of guitar design.

Great T style sounds, with the addition of S-style sounds of switch position 2 and 4 sounds via the extra volume pot.
Had it for 4 months so far and I keep going back to it, a keeper.

-It is light with a comfortable ergonomic body shape.
-Well finished with no issues.
-The neck feels very nice to play, easy action, with a matt finish and is smooth, mine has unexpectedly nice figuring on the fret board too, but all will be a little different.
-Solid tuning via the locking tuners.
-Modern flatter fretboard.
-Bridge design is less likely to hack bits of skin from your right hand than a traditional design.
-I put 10-46 on it and you can still do ridiculous bends due to scale length.
-Bridge pickup is T spanky and can leap out of speakers, neck is T bluesy, middle is S errr.... middley.

Only issue is a bit of bridge resonance, which is a positive T typical feature, however it is pronounced as you wind up the gain. The fixit screw in the bridge by the pickup just twirls in its socket as the thread is stripped and doesn't reduce the effect. It is in the 'I will fix one day' so it can't be that bad.

Overall:
-Good value at this price as it does feel a cut above the more affordable end of the market.
- I really like T-treble from the bridge and range of sounds.
-If it was stolen I would try and get another for it's versatility, feel, and price.
-I'd prefer another colour, but I always say that.

Return of the Talman!

17.03.2017
Essentially a cool offset Nashville style tele at a very affordable price!
Plenty of clarity in the alnico pickups and very versatile switching - bridge, middle, neck, bridge + middle, neck + middle, bridge + neck and all 3 together.
Couldn't find any flaws with the fit and finish of mine - set up only required a turn of the truss rod to lower the action a little.
Usual lightning fast delivery to UK from Thomann.
Get one!
