Whatever your taste in music, there are some sweet guitars here! I know there are quite a few people hereabouts who swear by their Epi's (as opposed to me: I swear AT my guitars a lot.........) and these look to be pretty high quality.

:D :D :D

Is this kind of like what Epiphone did when they had their Elite series?

i don't believe so.
the elitists are still made in their own factory in Japan as far as i know.
these are a whole new upgrade, and i assume are being made in korea,china, or indonesia.
the ultra II is a upgrade Hybrid based on the Ultra chambered LP:

"Based upon Epiphone s top-selling Les Paul Ultra, the Ultra-II adds a proprietary NanoMAG low-impedance pickup embedded into the fingerboard and custom electronics to create a Les Paul that is not only capable of blistering, electric guitar riffs but also shimmering acoustic-like tones and when combined, greatly expanded frequency range and tonal capabilities. The goal of the Ultra-II was to create a more versatile guitar that was capable of not only real Les Paul tone, but also acoustic-like qualities but without adding a lot of controls and changing the overall appearance of the legendary Les Paul. Unlike other instruments that attempt to create a completely new guitar design, Epiphone went about this differently by starting with a proven, electric guitar design and adding to it."
