Don't think I've ever seen one. Got a pic? I've seen wee felt pads on the underside, but that's about it.

I've seen them on other bigsby copies like vibrolas or old Burns trems, but I'm sure I've seen one or two on proper bigsbys. Imagesearch isn't great on work computers though.

I just threw out 2 of them. They're there for packing and preserving the Bigsby from getting scratched. If I can find one ( I might still have one. I bought 3 Bigsbys this year) I'll just send you one. I'd love to see what the postal service would charge me to ship that lil thing to the UK......

You'll have to forgive my ignorance, but why do you need one? I didn't really think they served any purpose... **Genuine question**

Unless he's selling a Bigsby, I'd still say it was a genuine question.

I just like the idea of bigsby-type trems to have a nice plastic handle. Like vibrolas.

Plasti dip? or whatever it's called? The stuff that you can use to re coat pliers handles.

Sounds legit. I'll look into it.
