Apparently rickenbacker already angled frets (no multiscale) in 1973, although not as probounced as this.
So the idea is not new, as i recal there was a guitar in the 90’s that had a more extreme angle. I only ever saw it on an electric though. It was suppost to be better at ‘speed shredding’ , a thing that was part of the 90’s rock/metal scene....
Here in combination with a multiscale i can’t see the benefit of not having the perpendicular fret within the fretboard range. Perhaps one has to try, or perhaps it will work better with a certain playing position.

Anyway: really nice execution! And would like to be able to try if i come across one.
