As many of you know, playing right-handed just feels wrong. Quickly, without thinking about it, play some air guitar. If the neck of your invisible guitar points to the right — and the idea of flipping it over makes your head explode — congratulations! You’re naturally a left-handed player.

Different studies have found left-handers more inclined towards being better artists, showing that they are more adept to divergent thinking. This explains why some of the best players are left-handed; from Tiny Tim and Kurt Cobain to Paul McCartney and Jimi Hendrix.

Therefore, VegaTrem is pleased to offer you the UltraTrem VT1 LH at the same price as the original. So welcome lefties.

The patented VT system (ES 1119430 U) is based on two basic principles: the adaptation of the bridge dimensions to the existing standard cavity in the ST models and the bridge pivoting system. Adapting the dimensions aims to allow the bridge to freely enter into the cavity of the guitar body by pulling the whammy bar back (tensioning the strings) and requires a redesign of the complete assembly (saddles, plate and block). To optimize the movement of the bridge, the pivotal center of action has been changed by adding a part (fulcrum) that replaced the traditional concept of support on screws, giving more amplitude to that movement. The shape of the point of support of the plate on the fulcrum has also been changed, minimizing friction, which is practically non-existent. The result is a homogeneous action very pleasing to the musical performance totally free of unwanted noises. (It is recommended to use low friction nuts and locking tuners).

The tremolo, reinvented

You wanted a floating bridge that did not force you to drill into or modify your beloved ST guitar, so we did it. You desired a vibrato bridge that did not stick out more than the original bridge, and here it is. You imagined total freedom of movement and a whammy bar that never caused bother and here it is. You fantasized about a tremolo free of unwanted noises and now that dream has come true. You wanted to get rid of the hassle of microtuners. You have it.
Welcome to the VT1 UltraTrem: the tremolo, reinvented.

Simple, no problem

If you have already mounted, adjusted or simply changed strings with any of the existing tremolos on the market and you are not a handyman or aspiring luthier, then you already know it isn’t such an easy task at all. So we have redesigned everything so that with a simple video and a screwdriver you can mount your VT1 UltraTrem in the blink of an eye. And if when you hear the word dismount you see the Antichrist, do not worry, your luthier or your trusted store will be happy: they will never have earned such easy money for doing something so simple.

Your beloved ST, unspoiled

If you have looked into it, you will know that up until today, mounting your floating bridge on an ST type guitar meant that you always needed to modify, and this meant drilling new holes, and screwing into the original bridge cavity. Whether your beloved Stratocaster is a classic or an upgraded standard, A PROFANE ACT indeed! For this reason, we invented the VT1 UltraTrem. That means not having to drill, sand, or enlarge anything, since it fits perfectly into the original cavity.


If, by what you’ve read so far, you’re not convinced that changing to VT1 offers enough benefits? Well, there’s one more very important reason: the VT1 is, by its original design, the most compact tremolo on the market, therefore, it does not stick out from the body, as usually happens with other tremolos, and this means the whammy bar won’t in any way hinder your interpretation.


If you love the look of your guitar you will not be thrilled to have to replace the original bridge with a metal brick like the tremolos thus far available on the market. But that’s history. The VT1 UltraTrem fits almost in the same space as the original bridge, so your guitar will look as beautiful as ever and you will love the stainless steel top coating. Because although we may not confess it, we all care about our aesthetics and we all have a Rock Star soul.


All the mechanical improvements of the VT1 UltraTrem, in relation to everything previously existing, make it behave in a more musical way, it is no longer just the tone and the absence of noise, it is also that the intervals that you get when tightening the strings are harmonically...

Very well designed, but could be tricky...

This could be a tricky tremolo to install. Locking tuners are highly suggested for this setup. It is truly a "floating" tremolo system and relies on the strings and strings to be lined up perfectly for install. After that, everything seems to be very nice.

Well designed, with high quality with precision in mind. I have no complaints with its functionality. Great jog Vega!
