So, I just installed a Bigsby on my Les Paul. I’ve never had a Bigsby. Looking for some advice.

so far, it’s been nice. No tuning issues or weirdness.

I turned the bar towards the tailpiece. I still had a little trouble closing the case. Is that normal? Any tips or tricks on fitting it better in its case?

Also, I always rest my hand on the stoptail and bridge to mute the strings when playing leads,palm muting, etc..

Do you get used to the Bigsby being in the way and resting your hand on it? I found it a bit awkward, doable but odd feeling.
