Never played the first one, but I have a DXMG and I like it, though it doesn't get played as much as my SG now that I put EMGs in it.

DXMG

MG series... one series down from the pro series (DK2M is a pro-series).

EMGs are toneless, lifeless, horrible pickups.

Made from basswood... one step up from agathis... simply put: bad.

DK2M

Looks better.

Pro series.

Seymour Duncan JB/59 are great pickups. If you need more "metal", replace the JB in the bridge with a Duncan Distortion or another one of your favorite pickups that don't suck. JB is still a very capable metal pickup though.

Made from Alder, a high quality wood with a bright resonance and snappy sound to it.

I have one.

Comes down to maple vs rosewood and seymours vs. EMG-hzs.

Personally I'd go with the DXMG (biased, I own one) because I am not a fan of maple fretboards, but I must admit the pickups are shitty, but the pickups in the DK2M are great.

Edit: To the above, the MG series is on par with the pro series. It's built in the same factory, and MGs are just pros with emgs. + basswood is a good wood, it's used in Ibanez Universes ffs.

My favorite SD pickups probably the Full Shred. I also hate EMGs.
