Um, I use a right angle chord all the time with Strats. My two main guitars are a Strat and an SG. I refuse to use a straight cable into an SG. You can use a 90 with the standard Strat Jack plate. At least I've been able to use any right angle chord I've ever owned with any Strat I've ever owned. I haven't owned all the Strat's and chords there ever was. Teles???? Not so much. They usually get an Electrosocket.
