    Im ordering bkp's for my custom ff. Scale lenght is 25'5-27. What angle the pups should be so that neck pup matches last fret and bridge pup matches bridge? I know that bkp does angel from 10 to 14 degree.

    Thanks for the help!

    14 degrees will line up with the bridge angle of a 1 inch fan(9th fret perpendicular) 7 string so you will need 16 or 18 to match up correctly with a 1.5" fan. 14 degrees should line up with the 24th fret.

    Unless anything has changed BKP only make a 10 degree slant but can make a 14 degree baseplate because there is just enough room for the string to line up with the pole pieces when they turn the pickup to fit the baseplate.
