Les paul ultra ll vs standard

I have a 08 les paul standard that i upgraded the pickups with 490/498 Gibson and a swichcraft togle switch. There's a '08 Les paul ultra ll for sale for $450. Is it worth the trade or i will only get the nanomag in bonus because mine is flawless. Do ultra's use the same pickups that were on my LesPaul originally ?

According to the Epiphone website they use the same neck pickups but the Ultra II has a Alnico Classic Plus in the bridge whereas your standard uses a Alnico Classic. I'd keep the upgraded Standard and wait for something else to come along.

 

By the way, beautiful Corvette in your signature. [thumbup] [thumbup] [thumbup]

Thank you for your answer and for my corvette. So i have a better guitar now with my 490/498 pickups than with the utra. I might stick with mine because i really like it and it's the same color of my vette.

 

Good call............[thumbup] [thumbup] [thumbup] ..........
