FrankenTalman

Post by youknowwhat4q » Thu Nov 30, 2006 10:02 am

So I have recently aqured some Ibanez Talman parts.  A 1994 body and a 1998 neck with pick guard and a pick up.  My problem is that I am missing many vital pieces.  First off I need a control plate/output housing, neck washers and bolts, trem arm and the proper trem cover.  Does any one have any idea where I can find these pieces.

Since I've told you so much already, I might as well tell you the final plan.

1 Kent Armstrong Lipstick and 1 GFS Dream 90
1 Fader pot in place of a switch
Master Volume/Master tone in a stacked pot
and a kill switch.

Ooh, me likey  :)
You can get the neck attachment ferules and wood screws (aka bolts) from Stew-Mac.com.  As for the output plate, those were unique for Talmans, so eBay or some other Talman is you best bet.  As for the trem cover, do you mean the thing that goes on the back to cover the springs?  You can get one of those anplace that sells guitar parts.
Save up for your dream guitar.

For any parts unique to the Talman you should try contacting Ibanez directly. I had an early 80's Artist model I got second hand in the late 90's and it needed some refurbishing. I called Ibanez up not expecting much really...they couldn't have been nicer and were able to still get me some of the parts I was after. The guy seemed to think it was really cool that I had one of their old guitars and started looking up the serial number/date info for me and genuinely wanted to chat about the guitar.
