Welcome to GT! I’m not familiar with that model, so I don’t have any tips. But let’s see of photo of that new guitar.

Edit: photo added, nice!

It's a nice, very comfortable guitar for me. If the break angle is as severe on yours and looks like the "before" picture of mine below, you are going to struggle with the Bigsby and tuning, regardless whether you lube and cut the nut slots as mentioned above. A BiggsFix takes care of the problem.

Hello, I'm new to the Gretsch forum. And, recently purchased a new G-5655TG Electro Ctr.Blk. Jr. w/B-70 Bigsby. Is anyone here familiar with this guitar?
Anyone have any tips to share as I get used to it?
Welcome to the forum @dst5655 . Beautiful guitar

Usually you see more 5420s as the NGD first gateway Gretsch, but seems like the Centerblock jrs are catching on a bit. Just enjoy getting used to it, welcome to the club! The Centerblock abides!

I have this older LTD version (BTFT pickups in this one),
great demo of that one here:
