I've wondered this for a while and couldn't find a good answer on this forum. But why is it that the bridge pickup on stratocasters is on an angle. Would it make a huge difference tonally if it was straight? Humbuckers are straight so why are single coil bridge pickups not? Why are the middle and neck pickups straight?

I figured theres a reason and it's not for looks. I'd like to know if it makes much a difference because I'm ordering a custom pick guard see my thread in gear building and customizing. And I'd like to know if I should order the bridge as straight or keep it angeld. If it makes any difference this isn't a stock bridge pickup it's a DiMarzio Virtual 2 Bridge.

wylde_overdrive has already given you the answer...
If it were straightened (depending on which way it was slanted in the first place) if would chage the bass/treble-ness of the pickup.

To balance out the bass and treble of it.
