hi guys, I had made up my mind for kh - 202, then one gentleman (rust in pain) suggested me DXMG. I am researching on this two guitars.... These guitars have almost same specifications....like pickup etc..just body wood diff...like kh has basswood and DXMG has Alder and other things.. One good thing abt DXMG is that its cheaper than KH...he he. ESP KH 202 Specifications: Construction: Bolt-on Scale: 25.5" Body: Basswood Neck/Fretboard: Maple/rosewood Inlays: Skull & bones, model @ 24th fret Pickups: EMB-HZ H-4 set Electronics: 2 volume, tone, 3-way slotted Hardware: Black Bridge: Floyd Rose licensed Binding: None Frets: 24 XJ Other Colors Available: None Weight: ???
