TALON V

 

 

The Talon V is identical to the Talon IV except for the the headstock orientation, which is slanted up (i.e. reversed). It might as well have been called the IVR.
Talons with a Kahler-labelled tremolo had no screws all through the neck at the nut, and no string retention bar. Other tremolos did.

It used to sell for $1169.99.

Remarks: When you look really close into this paint job you can actually see a black undercoat and the paint paint over it... It almost looks like a granite finish (not visible on the pictures). It's the only Midnight Blue guitar the owner has ever seen with this finish.
