Audiofanzine FR's review (Ibanez - TCY10E)

By Audiofanzine FR, 05/12/2008
(Originally written by chamalo31/translated from Audiofanzine FR)

Fir tree top

Mahogany back, sides and neck

Rosewood fingerboard and bridge

Piezo pickup

AEQ201 preamp

Ivorex II neck and bridge nuts

Advantage string pins

Chrome Smooth Tuner AS machine heads


Made in China (the model made in France is six times more expensive)

Very nice finish considering the price


I bought this guitar as my main instrument and for mobile applications (very light, compact, nice-looking... I like it ^^)

Good playability and easy access to the upper frets.

You'll only have to change the strings because the original strings are really bad.

Even if it is a Chinese guitar it provides Ibanez quality.

I didn't have a lot of money so I chose this IBANEZ because it's an electro-acoustic model, because it had a nice price (I tested a cheaper model but with a low-quality preamp and without a tuner) and because of its great looks.


- I own a big folk guitar so the lack of lows of the acoustic sound disappointed me.

- I play with a Jim Harley electric guitar amp but I also plan to use this guitar with my hi-fi system.

- When plugged the sound is ok considering the price.


I still have my folk Valley Blues guitar (French brand).

- I also own a Jim Harley electric guitar (for sale)

- I own a bass guitar

- And I also have a classical guitar in ukulele size.

I received the guitar this morning. I've already played it four hours and I like it... I recommend it to people like me who are not beginners anymore (I've been playing for one year).

This guitar combines a nice price, manufacturing quality, great looks, playability and lightness.

Gaston midi's review (Ibanez - TCM50E)

By Gaston midi, 18/01/2014
Electro acoustic guitar with a handle and an electric typed micro ... see the overall opinion


Easy and light guitar ... see the overall opinion


Guitar small, lacking a bit of body acoustics, but excelente and typed once connected ... See the overall opinion


I am a guitarist and have poor to say the least ... I have this guitar for 4 years.

I wanted a small acoustic electric guitar has a good sound, good playability while remaining within a budget to meet less talent. :)

TCM 50 has a near miss electric guitars, easy to play, a magnetic pickup electric guitar also.

It is small, easy to walk, and well finished.
Electronics provided a master volume slider for bass and one for treble, along with a tuner.

The sound is very good, but weak and poor in low (acoustic), which is due to the small size.

Once plugged this guitar is very versatile, little get beautiful acoustic guitar sound further, but also a whole range of electric sounds .. very large sounds, ons close to a half body jazz, and many things with the right effects. (TCM contairement to 10 who have a classical acoustic microphone).

With the magnetic pickup, you can not put strings composed of any metal, so I understand. In any case, the ultra light bronze Martin are wonderful (for my taste).

TCM 50 is an amazing guitar that try (especially hip), pretty, easy, good value for money.

Casserolle! (Ibanez - TCY10E)

By maillotketchup, 29/11/2014
Me: Fred, 30 years of guitar. Countless guitars tried and I have not finished coming here to say what I think.

Manufactured in: We get crazy!

Handle: A fretboard really thick. It's boring, hard to play ... maybe a satisfactory adjustment ...

A micro hybrid ... ??? What is this thing? They are calibrated to damage guitars like that ... the povre!

What are the settings? Then you can adjust the tension of the strings with the keys located at the end of the handle. We can also adjust the volume and then also the bass and treble, but, honestly, all kidding zero, find a good and correct equalize everything.


Is nice round: No!

Ergonomics is it good? Do not let the guitar to drink his beer failing to find the handle on the floor! Prefer to take a straw barn! No ... but they tried their piece of wood? Tip: Run in the box three kilograms of cement mason. This is the only way to prevent it from turning in the letting.

Is Access to acute right? It's really important? So, no, as usual, it's not so easy to play further than the fourteenth. They were a cut and paste a guitar that already sounds not at all. Anything!

Gets it easy to sound good? Well, she mimics fairly well the old wheel or creaking door. When I tried this crap, I wondered why they had put a sounding board. Can not make it sound like an acoustic guitar. So I tried it on a amplifiers. A small fender ... I saw tears running the speaker. Povre amps!


What are the settings that obtained? that, to be crystalline !!! You can remove the lower strings, they are useless. We get a sound never heard before. Looks like the notes remain trapped inside.

I also tried with shectler. Nothing! For electric guitarists, go your way and go buy a Squier ... it's much better. For acoustic guitarists, give there to a guy you do not like. For people who are new, it's really the guitar not to buy. No sound, hard, sickening. In addition, it is a feedback box!


How long I have: No but it will not! I have not bought this crap. I tried ... 5 minutes! And again, I lost my time. It's a shame to sell such stuff.

It did absolutely nothing. Perhaps for the SKA, punk ... and after burning for a good stage effect!

Finally, we can find it beautiful. But really, the first who told me it sounds, I eat with him and I think the handle. It's still there it will go better. A crappy guitar, an infamous pot!

Pictured is a tv750 (Ibanez - TV650)

This is not so much a review as a correction. Pictured is the Talman TV750. The only difference between it and the TV650 is the color. The 650's were a cream white, and the 750's have the sunburst/flame color. I've attached a photo from an Ibanez catalog showing the 2 models.
