My grandson (the young one who has only been playing a year) got a new guitar and amp with his Christmas money. An Ibanez RGMS7-BK Iron Label Multi Scale 7 String and a Marshall CODE100 2x12 Combo. I had a shot of the axe with it's fan frets, and it was a joy to play. A definite first for me. He was dotting around the fretboard, like a pro.
