Is the Talman bass series supposed to be Ibanez's take on the Fender Jaguar bass?

Hello everyone. I'm still continuing to explore the unique bass models that Ibanez has to offer.

Recently, I started looking into the Talman line.

I noticed that the shape of the Talman body closely mimics that of the Fender Jaguar bass. Plus, the Talman has a split-coil pickup and a single bridge pickup.

Is the Talman series supposed to be Ibanez's take on the Fender Jaguar?

Can you guys fill me in?

Thanks everyone.

I'd say that may be a reasonable thought. Though it probably isn't the sole purpose or plan for the Talman Basses. The Talman guitars were made in the 90s and these bass bodies are based off of the original Talman body from the 90s:

Hope this helps,

I don't really think so. I am quite sure it's just Ibanez's offering of a bass version of the "TC" body Talman guitar.

I've had a TC620 Talman guitar for many years and after Ibanez offered the short scale version of the Talman bass (TMB30) last year, I got one of those too. I love them both.
