Here are the 2 guys that led me to play guitar :

The Edge and his fabulous clapton strat : (note that the edge played briefly on a fender squier serie)

George Harrison is a good one, Ry Cooder, Yngwie Malmsteen, Jeff Beck, John Frusciante, Mark Knopfler, Dave Murray, John Mayall, Jeff Healy. I could go on forever, George Harrison, John Mayall, Jeff Healy all played Squiers also.

that's a good one.

I like the strat players who aren't on most people's lists.

couple more:

Johnny Marr (used a lot of stratocasters over his career)

Jimmy Nolen (james brown's guitarist and one of the best rhythm players ever)

Aside from Hendrix, Gilmour, and the edge, I'd say this guy one of the best:

John Frusciante of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. He is the reason my first guitar was a strat (as well as owning multiple today ;))

Didn't know Cobain used one. Pretty cool!

Sorry guys but I'm a blues man...
Eric Clapton, SRV, Buddy Guy, Robert Cray, Bonnie Raitt, Kenny Wayne Shepherd.

If you want to see a strat played to perfection just watch any of the Eric Clapton Crossroads concert videos.
