Pickups on my JEM7VWH - not 'straight'??

the neck evo p/u on my new jem7vwh is not parallel to the body, its tilted at an angle... sloping downwards from neck to body (looking at it sideways).

there seems to be nothing I can do about this, is there?

how does this affect the guitar and the output when i select the neck p/u?

the other 2 p/u's (middle and bridge) are fine though.

Pickups on my JEM7VWH

Yank it about a bit. The screws might be poking into the scratchplate at a funny angle, giving your pickup a funny angle of attack. Not owning a Jem, I don't know for sure, but this happened when I replaced my pickups... It shouldn't have too much affect on the output, although if the problem is severe then it might to (we're talking very sharp angle here...).

I'll wait until some of the big hitters get here... LOL!
