Hey, im wondering if anybody can help me out. I want to pick up a new guitar (shitty epiphone lp special II right now......). Im looking for something suited for death/black metal, I dont have much to shell out due to lack of funds, so anything under 400 or so. Thanks for the help!

Save up for a real guitar...

$400 will buy you expensive firewood.

Can anyone tell me the difference between the DXMG and the DX10D? I can't see it, and i'm thinking about getting the DX10D cause i'm gonna swap the pickups anyway, but if theres a good reason to get the DXMG, i'll get it

The ESP LTD KH is just about $400. The Jackson X series are all about $400-$450.

Used = guitars you couldn't afford now if they were new. I'm sure you could knock off $100 or even more off some high end ESP Ltd. stuff. Check their site. The MSRP price is way much more than what real stores sell it at, so knock off an additional $100 if you buy it used.

They used to be RRP$849 (US), now they've stopped production and the ones left are $199.

I'm going to be trying out the quilted maple veneer version sometime in the future.

exactly. theres loads around, you could definetly get a nice ibanez rg or jackson dinky for it. Hell I bought my RG750 for 400, that used to be the prestige of its days, it's from 89 but it still plays like a new one

I don't know about the first, but the KH-202 has low quality woods, a licenced floyd and passive EMG's. So no, it's not a decent guitar.

Harmony-central classifies always has people selling them for cheap.

I just saw one with a JB in the bridge and a Jazz in the neck go for $370.
