The ESP 87 series is really cool, and the Fender HM strat is also cool. Most new guitar designs don't interest me, so I've basically given up on new guitars. New amps also don't really excite me as well. The trend is towards smaller heads with built-in effects and IR loaders, but for some reason that really turns me off. Even though not having a built-in gate and OD are my cited reasons for not using tube heads live, heads that include those just do nothing for me. The digital and analog realm for amps should remain separate, IMO.
