I didn't read all of the above comments, so I apologize if someone else has already mentioned this but; I was watching the video interviewing Eddie Cochran about his recent signature model Gretsch and this was one of his concerns. He had them put a mod on the Bigsby of changing the pegs to being just a little bit longer, and he says then you can pop them on there and not have to think about 'em any more.
P.S. In an interview with Jim Heath about his signature model Gretsch, he too had this complaint and resolved it with the mod of Grover Locking Tuners (I believe it was Grover). He said this way you could string it with one hand while holding it in place with the other.
