2012 - starting in 2012, the metal battery compartment was added.
2013 -  there was no circular patch on the back of the headstock.
As far as I know this affected all custom shop models from Kiso in 2013 as in 2014 they moved to the world map patch.
I have not seen any KH-2 Vintages beyond 2013 and heard a rumor they are being discontinued.
