    hey im new but...
    i got a bass off ebay... wasn't quite what i was expecting but nonetheless..
    anyway - everything is decent except for the top pickup (sorry if there is a name for it, i dont know it).
    like it's slanted downwards. so if you looked at my bass from the top of the neck it would look like this:
    (if this makes any sense)
    instead of:

    should i just loosen the very top screw that holds the top pick up on place? because that's where it's slanted.

    Loosen the screw that's holding it down, and you'll be golden. Good luck!

    I was under the impression that they were supposed to be like this. What is the deal? All the P Basses and J Basses I've seen in store have had a slanted top pickup.
