Congrats bro! I have a 1994 kh2! And it was indeed made in 1994! that serial on the headstock with the four digits! Is def. old! And yes it is 1994! And don't worry about the neck plate! It's a different number (same on mine) and that number fits the criteria of a 1994! And I tried getting a COA from ESP and they said they don't reprint COA's for early guitars like that... If you want to go deeper into when it was made take off the neck and there should be A date written on the body where the neck sits... Hope it helps!
