VegaTrem VT2 release! Tremolutionary, again
The electric guitar started a worldwide musical revolution thanks to Leo Fender and his two creations: the Telecaster and the Stratocaster.
Now, seven 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.
Following the same successful concept as the VegaTrem VT1 for the S-Type now there is a VegaTrem for the T-Type with a price of 265 euros (prices may vary in dollars and other currencies).
This is a revolutionary creation as 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 incorporate springs that would allow the classic tremolo movement and, at the same time, enrich the tone and sustaining without losing 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. VegaTrem’s audacious solution combines the use of extraordinary quality materials such as marine grade stainless steel and brass saddles (like the classic design) which enhances the tonal qualities of your TL-type guitar, regardless of using the vibrato or not. Without a doubt, the possibilities of “pulling up” to up to half a tone, or “dive bombing”, create the new sound and musical life that only a vibrato can give to these legendary guitars.
Installing a VT2 Teletrem, unlike other options on the market, respects the body of your beloved guitar without the need of making any permanent changes.
The Teletrem is available in 2 versions:
VT2 Teletrem classic: for T-style guitars that use classic dimensions bridge (71mm between the string holes to the top screw of the bridge pickup).
VT2 Teletrem modern: for T-style guitars that use modern dimensions bridge (66mm between the string holes to the top screw of the bridge pickup).
