I know they're both pretty s**tty guitars. But which is better?

This is to settle an argument between me and a mate.

Thanks in advance!
Depends on what u want.
I personally prefer the strat out of both.

For some the GAX is better cuz of wider neck, HH configuration...

DBZ guitars, love'em. Especially their Les Piccolo model.
Well for having played both guitars and having owned the GAX30 as my first guitar ever I'd go with the Ibanez. I really prefered the owerall feeling of the guitar.

But again, you should try them both for yourself.

IMO, I think the bullet strat is a good beginner guitar. It's what I have and I've no issues with it. The tone is good, the tuners are a little bit imprecise (as in the tuning knobs are not as sensitive as fancier guitars), and the finish on the neck isn't as waxy as a real couple hundred $ strat, but overall, i think you'll get a good bang for your buck if you're looking at cheap beginner guitars.

I haven't tried the GAX30, so I can't comment on it. Personally, I prefer the bright sound of single coil pickups....humbuckers are a little too warm for me. You'll have to consider which pickup tone you'd want your guitar to have as well.
