Should I make any modifications on my guitar to install the VT1 system?
Installation of the VT1 system does not require any permanent modification to the instrument, just dismantle the existing bridge and replace it with the VT1 following the instructions of the video tutorial available on our website. It is recommended to verify that the nut does not block the movement of the strings or replace it with a low friction nut, as well as to avoid redirecting devices of the string in the headstock.
What happens if my guitar does not keep tuning?
The VT1 is a double action tremolo that optimizes the movement, as a result, more movement than the standard tremolos and this is a fact. The stability of the tuning will depend on other factors; (quality of the tuners, type of nut, etc…)
Can I use any string gauge?
The VT1 supports up to 54w string gauge without problem.

What's the difference between a Vibrato/ Tremolo and a floating bridge?

A floating bridge is nothing else than a tremolo that doesn’t lay on the guitar´s body, but remains “suspended” between two forces. In one side, string tension, and in the other the springs. Therefore, it has the possibility of both loosening the strings and tightening them, moving the pitch of the notes up and down.


Do I need a locking nut to use the VT1?

VT1 system does not need a locking nut, on the contrary, the smoother the string moves through the nut, the better for tuning stability

Do I need to use locking tuners with my Vega-Trem?

Not at all. The VT1 works equally well on a guitar with vintage tuners as well as on a standard or with locking tuners, as long as these are in good shape and meet the minimum quality standards

What is the difference between vibrato and tremolo?

Both words come from articulations in the musical language. The word tremolo refers to the variations of volume in a sound (effect emulated in famous  guitar amplifiers and later on effects pedals). Whereas  vibrato is the variation in pitch. (Also emulated) Therefore it would be more accurate to call vibrato to a moving bridge system on a guitar, although both terms are widely used.
