does anyone play with fanned/multiscale frets? what do you think about them?

thinking of buying this:

i haven't played an Ibanez acoustic i didn't like. Looking at this vs one of their Thermo Aged wood models.

supposedly it is more comfortable for your fretting hand as it is more ergonomic. i'm not sure if it maintains tuning better as you move up the neck. but this is taken from their website:

Ibanez Marketing wrote:
The purpose of the multi-scale system is to optimize the tension of each string—creating a more "alive," open tone. The different fret-to-bridge distances enhance tonality, creating a better-sounding instrument. This design not only expands harmonic complexity, but also improves playability across all six strings. The slant of the multi-scale frets ergonomically coordinates with the way a players hand angles as it moves up and down the neck—facilitating quick, comfortable playing action.
