...and it's the Ibanez Talman TM330m. I bought this guitar for my nephew. I took it out of the box to check it out(big BIG mistake) right out of the box I couldn't believe what I had in my hands...the fit and finish(man these chinese guitars have come a lonnng way) This guitar has a bone nut,locking tuners,alnico single coils(with very stratty tones) and a two piece alder body. as this for $199.99( they sell normally for $399.99) B&H photo has them on sale $199.99...Musician's friend couldn't even price match them(as they said it was below their cost!!! even though B&H is an authorized dealer) I,m just amazed(and I am hard to please) get'em while you can! link below

Yep, the name-brand stuff coming out of China these days is amazingly good.<br /> <br /> I've been using B&H for most of my PA gear purchases for many years. Their prices are hard to beat elsewhere.

I like that offset body design.

I need another guitar like I need a hole in the head (and I have a few of those already). <br />

Looks like free shipping to my location. This might be an item where you could "flip it" and make a few bucks if you were so inclined to do so.

I have an old one w/lipsticks - autographed by Jan & Dean! It was my #1 for a looong time.

this guitar really impressed me,so much so... that I pulled the trigger on another one(for myself) Lol BTW I also have a Japanese Talman Tc825(it has a blue sparkle body,bigsby and two super58's) although this talman isn't quite as good as my MIJ one but its scary close in terms of fit,finish,playability etc...

I clicked the link, Ive already got a handful of guitars that are in the 2-3 hundred dollar ball park and I play them all the time but this looks pretty tempting indeed.

Not surprised that these went cheap in the last gasp, they've clearanced 'em out for the last six months to various degrees of effectiveness.<br /> <br /> I watched with interest when the reissues appeared...then lost any when it was maple fretboard only.<br /> <br /> I just don't do standard maple.

Nice looking guitar, and nice specs also, especially at that price. And you can really zoom in on those pics, enough to see that there are 3 tremolo springs. I also like the offset body...but just don't need any more guitars!

Yes they do. <br /> <br /> Great materials, and great fit and finish--even on their bottom range models. <br /> <br /> A lot like Yamaha Pacifica.
