Re: H H vs. H S H setup
I'm the same as Nuno -- H/S is my preferred config, and being an RG man I like how a H/S/H works, but then again the single coil ALWAYS gets on my nerves because it gets in the way of the pick.
I just bought an RG3120DR. It's a H/H config, and I have never owned an RG like this, but I understand that it's still possible to get stratty tones from it. I don't know until it arrives (currently shipping). From the reviews I've read it seems that a H/H config can get good strat-like sounds depending on how it's wired. Whatever, solutions can be found by replacing pickups, and I say you should go for any guitar despite the config if you really like the rest of the guitar. Single coil-like sounds can be had from double coil pickups such as the Humbucker From Hell (Dimarzio). It may not be 100% convincing, but I think it's possible to get a sound that is perfectly usable. Just figure it out later! That's what I'll do with my RG3120.
