Can you put a tremolo on a Telecaster?

For Fender fans who want it all, the Super-Vee’s faultless Maverick tremolo finally makes it possible to combine the boot-stompin’ sound of a Telecaster with the pitch-shifting sass of a Stratocaster.

Can a Telecaster have a whammy bar?

Can you add a whammy bar to a guitar?

How does the Trem King guitar vibrato system work?

The First New Design for Tremolo in 30 Years! The newly patented TREM KING® is a vibrato system for guitar that uses a fixed bridge concept. The bridge plate is fixed to the body of the guitar.

How does a vibrato bar work on a tone block?

When you use the vibrato bar, the tension bar brings the tone block back to the same Zero Point time after time. Two springs are normally all that are necessary to provide this balance. This allows for very light (2 lbs.) pressure to actuate the vibrato. The feel is precise and smooth.
