What he said.If it equally disappears when you touch the strings, then yes, this is normal, the guitar is fine, and problem can usually be traced back to a poor ground in the outlets you're plugging in to.
If it disappears only when you touch the pickup covers or jack, but not the strings, then your bridge/tailpiece is not properly grounded.
I'm guessing it is static electricty.A 335 huh? Dunno about the snapping, unless it's your body causing static on the plastic pickguard.
Did you do the Bigsby install? If not, ask your tech to get the grounding under control. If you did the install, see if you can find/trace the bridge ground (look for a wire soldered to the top of a pot going through a hole inside the body toward the stopbar or bridge anchor). If your ground went to the stopbar anchor, you'll probably have to reroute to the TOM anchor since it still has contact with the strings.
Not sure about the Graphtech... if the only thing new since the grounding issue was the Bigsby, then it's because of the Bigsby install and the fact that it needs to be grounded, or grounding needs to be re-routed. If the Graphtechs were added at the same time, that's another ball of wax that I'm not equipped to address.I'm guessing it is static electricty.
Ok i'll look into that. I have graphtech saddles will that affect anything if i get the ground re-routed to the bridge?
