i was at a local music store the other day they had 3 slanted fret basses a 4 5 and a 6 string. the guy told me these frets wre slanted to make you play faster
i couldnt play fast on those things to save my life it was very confuzing stuff. now it may be one of those things that you jsut have to play alot andf get used to and it pays off better in the end, or it may not be.

has any one else experienced these basses?

They're supposed to give better inotation all over to the fretboard for multiple string basses.

I've never seen one let alone tried one so that's where my knowledge stops.

Erm...aren't prettymuch all basses multiple string really? Unless you play a one-string.

If I counted correctly, 38. Yeah, it looks quite impossible. You'd have to be like a midget amongst midget to use it or something.

I have talked to some people who use it

It is faster than usual because it conforms to your hand's natural position ( instead of you moving your hand or bending your wrist/turning it to fit the bass ) and it is also more comfortable for the wrist.

And the higher frets are usable. I don't see why you would say they aren't. They highest frets are like the 24th fret of a guitar.

And it is called " fanned frets "

and no matter what anyone says, it doesn't help with intonation. it helps with tuning stability, string tension, etc. but not intonation at all. They usually have as good of intonation as any other expensive bass.
