Very nice guitar there :) Congrats and enjoy

Why is the neck pup slanted? What does the slant towards the low end do for tone in the neck?

Really no change in tone to my knowledge. The pup is slanted just to facilitate the extra frets on the high end of the guitar. I asked Bernie if we had to angle the pup and he said that is just the way he has to do it if I want 27 frets.

The highest end of the neck is ridiculous, by the way. It is like... hummingbird high in standard tuning. I can comfortably say I will never use it.
