Topic: Question about Emerald X7

I have a question about the last generation X7 vs the current one - would a very mediocre guitarist notice an appreciable difference?
To put a little more flesh on the question, I have returned to guitar after about 30 years, was never particularly accomplished even then and have various hand problems that will limit progress. Currently play a Chinese Breedlove, which is fine, but I live in the northeast and keeping it in the case means that the rise time to play gets to limit opportunity to play. The choice would be between a new and used. Clearly ""management approval"" for used is easier
