I've tried those bass guitars with the angled frets. I can't stand them. I get it, the intonation is better. Ok great. But I find them super annoying to play. Also, they tend to be super expensive and the extra cost, the huge extra cost, does not translate to the ears so I don't see the point.
My main bassist, God love him, has one of these super expensive, angled fret basses. My other bassist has an entry level Yamaha TRBX or something like that. The difference in price? About $3.500.00. Ya, that's not a typo. The difference in sound? Nothing. Nada. Zip. In fact, if I had to pick one, I'd pick the Yamaha. But more because the Yamaha player is just a bit better at playing it.
But honestly, we tune up several instruments together. A piano, my guitar, a bass, a flute, an electric guitar, keyboards, and sometimes a saxophone. The "cheap" bass always sounds fantastic and the intonation is a non-issue and not worth the cost or the awkwardness in playability.
Just my opinion though, YMMV.
