My 2007 HSS Fender Highway1 has bridge bucker with 3 hole mounts. 2 screws on one sie and 1 on other . I think this is a good system . By the way screwing pick ups into the wood is nothing magical . The pickups do not hear the wood , just the string vibration in the magnetic field . Messing with pole pieces is another thing not to do . The magnetic field of each pole does not specifically focus to each string .

The standard Gibson style humbucker installation self levels the pickup to the plane of the top surface of the ring unless something interferes with its ability to move from spring pressure. So you should pick the ring to match up to the guitar, or trim the ring to the right angle, and then don't worry about it.
