The problem with this post is that we don't know what are you trying to decide between the two guitars? Sound? Features? User longevity? Playability?

In the context of sound, playability and aesthetics, that is obviously something that only you can decide when you test and play the guitar.

For everything else, how do you plan to use this guitar?

Depends what you're looking for in the guitar really I suppose. But I've never gone wrong with an Ibanez guitar. They sound great and are well worth what you pay for.
