I want to buy les paul style guitar, but I am on budget; so i am going through different les paul copies available with brands other than Gibson. After a little research on web, i have come across following 2 models:
greg bennett av6 and ibanez garts80.

I have used Fender squier strat before, so i have no idea about these brands except the fact that Ibanez is quite popular brand. So which of these guitars is better? i don't have any problem as long as stock pickups are concerned because i am going to replace them with duncan JB (B)/ 59(N). i am more concerned about the durability, characteristics of tonewood and the tuners.
