      I had a KH-602 and now an MII neck-thru. The KH-602 was nice, I just didn't like the black painted neck.

      No, it just has a thin satin clear coat just like the KH-2 neck thru

      i honestly pick the kh-602. my guitar center has both and the m-II felt like it was lesser quality. it was lighter, the back of the neck was rough, and it didnt play as nice as the 602. i was pretty surprised at the eclipse-II as well... that thing felt like a toy compared to my ec1k. although, my ec1k weights about 12 lbs and has the best playability i have ever seen on any guitar. i would pick the ltd for the price and the fact i would be more satisfied with it. if i were to buy an expensive guitar that was either les paul shaped or a super strat id go gibson and jackson, the LTD line blows everything out of the water in terms of what you get for the money and the ESP line is pretty much slightly better than ltd and double the price.

      Does anyone know if KH-602's neck is different from the current ESP M-II? I'm thinking of getting an M-II, but my local shop only has KH-602, so if they have identical necks, I could use KH-602 as a reference to see if M-II is right for me.

      I have played both.

      If you like the 602 you will the like the Mii - they feel very similar.  If feel the neck is just a slight bit narrower on the Mii.  The Mii is a lot better guitar.  The main difference in the neck is going to be the quality of materials used and the fret work will be a lot better on the Mii.  Also the Mii has a real floyd rose,  that will make a huge difference if you use your trem bar a lot.  It also has gotoh tuners that is nice but not as important because of the locking nut. 

      note the MII  only has a single volume knob and pickup selector - no tone knob -  I prefer this for passives but I like a tone knob for emg's   

      it would be hard to go wrong with either guitar
