The DII neck pup sounds great when split, so says me.
Wow, that's beautiful! I generally like the less figured tops on the CEs more than what you'd find on a Custom. That one is perfect! The color is fantastic too.
I also like D2 neck pickups. It was the 1st neck humbucker I ever liked.

I think you made the right trade. That's a really sweet CE!
