Double sided tape on the back side of the handle might work.
My guess is they are installed to protect the guitar from the bigsby tip.
When I got my Broadway Jade Penguin it had that plastic piece on the end and it didn't even fit right, all loose and slopy, so I took it off. I figure it was just a shipping bit incase the arm was pushed down into the finish it would offer some minimal protection otherwise its garbage.
Dude, using a Bigsby with the plastic tip is like taking a shower with a raincoat on!
Not sure if my vote would count as I cover both of mine with a Vibramate Handle
I throw them off immediately. Weirdly, I leave the plastic on a new pickguard until it starts to lift
Okay, now that makes sense. A functional grip like if your hand was sweaty.
Actually, I don't use it that much, that's pretty new to me, never had a Strat or any other guitar with tremolo before my first Gretsch last year. Then it's still quite out of my habits. I may play hours without thinking I could use it to enhance what I play.
Well, too thick to be comfortable. Kinda small too
Haha that one made me laugh
(How come there's no lol smiley on GT? May be useful from time to time. Not too invasive provided it's used with moderation...)
Never thought of that. As I bought my G2655T in a store, never saw what's the "stock" Bigsby position for shipping from the factory.
Maybe use heat shrink. Comes in colours too...
I’m actually (mildly) allergic to plastic. Yeah, never heard of that one either.
If you decide on getting one , the word " Vibramate " is printed on it in white . Obviously mine is installed with the print facing on the down side .
I use to put that on the shaft of all my screwdrivers when I was in the electrical trade
You've all convinced me, Mine is coming off as soon as I get home, Perhaps if I leave my blue one near my white one I'll get a little sky blue one
Need to keep things " PG " rated on the forum gang
Plasti- dip might work good...
Remember , these are permanent . Would have to scrape off with a knife
True... Might have to work a popsicle stick underneath and move it with the knife...
Just added a vote to "tear it off" as that's a vast majority. I'll wait until the weekend to perform that sensitive mod.
Make sure you wear a hard hat, gloves and safety goggles, and make sure you're standing in a tub of water too.
You might should get a goat, a guy blowin a trumpet and someone to do this
