Why dont electrics have narrow small acoustic type frets. I find my acoustic sliding, and playing easier than medium jumbo?

Small frets are great for cowboy chords and thicker strings, non bending styles, non/vibrato styles of playing.

Not so great for vibrato, bending, thinner strings, shredding, etc....

The medium jumbo feel like railroad tracks when sliding to different positions as compared to my acoustic frets. Any simple solution to shape them better?

If they are anything like typical Gibson frets they could probably use a crown and polish. I had to crown all my recent Gibsons because they were flat on top from the PLEK. Rounded frets are just plain more comfy.
