    Pardon me if this has been posted elsewhere in the past, but couldn't find one so I will start a new thread; (mods feel free to move if necessary)

    Who are some of your favorite Stratocaster artists? The obvious ones come to mind, of course; Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Eric Clapton, Rory Gallagher, David Gilmour, Mark Knopfler, Dick Dale...but how about some of the lesser-known artists who not only play(ed) the Strat, but literally owned it?
    Like Jim Messina, Buddy Guy, etc?
    Who are some of your faves?
