There are TWO models: the CLASSIC for vintage Fender spacing of 71mm, and the MODERN for modern 66mm spacing.
These TWO models can either have the “VT” logo in the bar or without which is specified in the title.
The electric guitar started a worldwide musical revolution thanks to Leo Fender and his two creations: the Telecaster and the Stratocaster. Now, 7 decades after the launch of these iconic guitars, VegaTrem closes the circle by creating this vibrato for Telecaster: the VegaTrem VT2 Teletrem, the tremolo that grants the T-style a new sound, without the need of modifying a single millimeter of Leo’s fantastic original design.
This is, once again, a revolutionary creation, since the Telecaster was conceived, 70 years ago, as a fixed bridge guitar and without space for a vibrato. The solution was to take advantage of the 6 holes that cross the body of the guitar from the bottom to the top, and place some springs that would allow the classic tremolo movement and, at the same time, enrich the tone and sustain without getting out of tune. This new tremolo/vibrato with its very own VegaTrem tuning stability, expands the future musical possibilities of this legendary guitar: Tremolutionary, again
The amazing T-Style electric guitars were not originally designed to receive a tremolo/vibrato. But VegaTrem‘s audacious solution combined with the use of extraordinary quality materials such as marine grade stainless steel and brass saddles (like the classic design), enhances the tonal qualities of your TL-type guitar, regardless using the vibrato or not. Without a doubt, the possibilities of “pulling up” to up to half a tone, or “dive bombing”, as well as the expression, the new sound and musical life a vibrato can give to these legendary guitars.
Who owns a Telecaster, especially if a classic, owns a treasure. Therefore, installing a VT2 Teletrem, unlike other options on the market, deeply respect the body of your beloved guitar without the need of making any permanent changes. Your TL-type guitar remains intact, keeping all its current and future value.
The VT2 Teletrem is designed by and for guitarists, and this shows in details. For example, the tension applicable to the springs is adjustable, thus you can adapt the VT2 to your favorite “set up”, even reaching enough resistance avoiding any kind of movement when doing “double stop bendings”.
