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.

Absolute no brainer.

I saw in a couple of pictures that on Bucketheads Les Paul (only some pictures) that his neck pickup is painted in white. Can anyone explain to me why he would do this, and if there are any pros and cons.

The guy wears a KFC Bucket and a white mask during performances, and you're interested in the color of his pickup covers?

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.
