On a banjo uke end piece, how is it supposed to sit once te uke is in tune? The piece kind of pivots on a screw...should it be straight or can it lean to one side. It's leaning now and sounds fine. Thanks all!

Cosmetically, it should be straight, but as long as the strings have adequate pressure on the saddle/bridge, and the bridge is in it's proper location, it should sound ok.

Can you post a picture? Maybe the head is not seated right or needs a little bit of tension.

OK now I see what you're getting at. I think you should be fine. What banjo uke is that?
