    Who wants to know?
    When I saw this photo I couldn't help but wonder about the neck p/u placement. Anyone ever seen this set-up before?

    Looks like it would make the bass strings a bit more twangy when he uses the neck pickup?

    .

    About like an SG or a Strat middle pickup location and tones plus the slant brightening the bass strings and mellowing the treble.

    Norm's rare guitars recently had a video about a Univox Hi-Flier. The Hi-Flier's had this same slanted setup for the neck pickup.

    Kurt Cobain apparently had a whole bunch of guitars with slanted neck pickups, including the Hi-Flier.

    You can see from the pickguard "cutout" that those pickups are NOT original. Also, the Epiphone Zephyr Deluxe originally came with the two-piece Epiphone "Frequensator" (right pix) which seems to have been replaced/lost somewhere along the line:
