So basically I've narrowed down my choices to these two guitars and I can't decide which one to buy. If you were in my position which one would you buy and why?

DK2S because it's a better guitar.

DK2S is made in Japan, SLSXMG is made in India.

So how can I tell where it's made?


All of the X series are Indian
All of the DK2(S)(M)(T?), DKMG are Jap
The usa made are labelled USA

Please Read The Following:
The DK2S, DK2M are Japanese made (2001-2011)

Any letters following the above like DK2M-Q, Pro DK2M, DK2M_(whatever letter) or DK2H are new since 2012 and 2013 are made in mexico, slightly higher quality than indian X series but just buried by the old japanese models.

That's just for the dinky line... there's a lot more to know
???

I played one a while ago, not too shabby, but nothing too special either. Could have been the set-up, though.
