I would think that having a "slanted" neck pickup has some pluses.
Wonder why that orientation never took off?

I have come across the slanted neck pups a few times. Most notably on my M Bernard, which I should never have sold. Granted, you do not see it all that often. I am not sure of the advantages.
I think the slant theoretically would make it a little brighter on the bottom end. Less muddy. A lot of the Eastwood guitars have a slanted neck pup.

It kind of grows on you... I gave it a good workout this past weekend and I like it, a lot. I was out of single coil PUPS (again) so glad to get one back in the arsenal. The guitar is very light and well balanced so a joy to wear. It looks at first that it would be uncomfortable and akward but it's really not.

Simple wiring. 3 way switch, tone and volume controls. The Bigsby style trem stays in tune. I put on some new strings and it was very easy to tune with that trem. Zero fret and slot vintage style tuners. Workmanship is of a high quality. These guitars are made in Bakersfield, CA
