The Ibanez is an Indonesian model. The Charvel is a Chinese model. Both are lower end guitars. I've played on several lower end Ibanez guitars and honestly they just don't impress me that much. It take a fair bit of work on the lower end Ibanez models to make them good playable guitars. The Desolation series from Charvel is getting a lot of love though from what I've seen. I still haven't been able to play one in person but the feature set alone kill a similar Ibanez for the price.

Wow an Ibanez RG with an ash body?!

Anyway, Ibanez RGs are great things.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

You're comparing a LP-type guitar to a super Strat. They will sound and feel entirely different. There's no way to fairly compare the two. You need to just try them for yourself. You might as well be asking us to tell you whether you prefer orange juice or coffee.

As much as I adore the So-cal and San Dimas, I really have found myself feeling disappointed with the Desolation.
