the otherday i was looking at a really old kramer and it was a very interesting guitar... it had only a bridge pickup(humbucker). the pickup was also slanted so that it was farther from the bridge at the 6th string. what is the purpose of having the pickup angled?

Well, if you're Eddie Van Halen it's because it was the only way you could get the pickup to fit.
Actually called Mark!

Most of the time it's to angle the pole pieces with the strings if the pickup is too big.

Slanting a pickup effects the tonality of the pickup. If the pole pieces are slanted toward the neck they will pick up a little more bass and a little less treble, and vice versa. Its a way of balancing the voicing of a guitar.
