I just got a used one, are the pickups supposed to be tilted? Because mine are and It doesn't look like I can adjust them.
Once you balance the pickup across all the strings (you know, getting all the strings to be more or less the same volume through the pickup), you may find that it does end up tilted to one side or the other.
Telcaster pickups can be adjusted unless the springs underneath are missing or put in wrong. What tele did you score?
