Someone with some knowledge of acoustics might help me out on this one-
Why is the neck pickup of a guitar more bassy than the body pickup? I would think that the pickup near the thicker part of the guitar would reflect a higher level of bass, and not the pickup that's closer to the neck.

it is farther away from the bridge, so it looses its brightness because it's farther from the point

Node?

That's pretty much it though, the string vibrates to create waves and the neck pickup is closer to the greater movement of the wave, the greater movement translates to frequency response - Same reason for angled pickups.
