Love the look of these guitars, and they have been extremely well reviewed. From what I can tell, the older model, the Epiphone Les Paul Custom Pro Koa was last made in 2017, and the newer, Custom Koa has been available over the last couple years. Really wondering what the differences are between the two versions, and which is the better guitar? I always believed the custom pro models were a step up, but only a custom model is available at the moment.
Your expertise would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I think the electronics (caps/pots) are the old style ones, newer one has the CTS and probuckers? Not sure about the older ones pickups.

I think the headstock and neck maybe the only other minor difference.

A quick Google showed that they are the same guitar with Probuckers 2 and 3.
