The M-200 is Neck-Thru construction, has a better Floyd Rose bridge, and has better pickups.

wats neck thru construction?
Its where the neck holds the pickups and the bridge and wings, the rest of the body, are glued on.
The 200 is definately a better guitar. Plus tonally, the maple neck-thru design will give it a much better, more solid sound than a bolt-on with an agathis body.
^ Well put. Also, don't be afraid of what people say of agathis. It isn't the greatest wood, but it isn't bad either. People always say to go for 400 series and up, but what a lot of people don't know is that a few of the 200 series of guitars have neck-thru construction which then the wings don't really matter as the pickups aren't set in agathis.
I own the 100fm and it plays well but there is a difference between the 100 and the 200. The difference is the emg hz pickups on the 200 they sound much better than the pickups on the 100
