As much as I hate to sound like a bandwagoner, Alexi Laiho made me goddamn love his signature model. It just screams "attitude" when I look at it.

Well, I wouldn't say any band has made me like the shape of a guitar, but I'd be inclined to buy a Rickenbacker 330 if money permitted because of Paul Weller in the Jam and it's unlikely I'd feel that way if I hadn't seen him play it... Still think Rickenbacker make kind of ugly guitars. The asthetic is an aquired taste, I guess.
I could go on for hours and I probably will, but I'd sooner put some joy back in this town called Malice

Vai got me interested in Ibanez and Jems, i didnt like them because of him, he was just the reason i gave them a try.

The only time someone has really made me like a shape was when Jimi getting me into strats and randy rhoads got me into Vs

Randy Rhoads was the first guy I saw sporting that shape of V. He made it look killer, yet elegant.
And I never liked the Explorer shape until I saw Phil Campbell sporting one. Again, they just kinda fit.
Edit: As far as the explorer shape though, I don't like it for myself-- I'd probably never buy one.

hmm... I know many people are gonna think it was Synyster Gates that inspired me, but it was actually my best friend that inspired me to get a Schecter Avenger. I still don't have one (lack of money) but it's gonna be my next guitar.
#18
Led Zeppelin for Les pauls.

Black Sabbath and AC/DC for SG's.

Metallica for super-strats

Randy Rhoads got me into Les Pauls. I was considering saving up the money and I started looking at vids on youtube and I saw the one of him doing the guitar solo in Quiet Riot and I was like "Ok, I know how im gonna spend my next $3000".

Now I own a '07 Les Paul Custom in Silverburst. xD

Dave Murray and Adrian Smith of Iron Maiden make me want to get a old Ibanez Destroyer (like '82 I think) but those things are hard to find. The next item on my guitar hitlist lmao

And of course there's Kirk Hammett who I decided to buy a signature model of and it still gets plenty of play time even with a Les Paul in the house. I love my 2 higher end guitars.
#20
Satch made me like the JS model.

I've always liked tele's, but Devin Townsend further re-affirmed my love for them.

I associate certain guitar designs with the players I first saw using them.

Les Paul = Jimmy Page and Robert Fripp

Stratocaster = Jimi Hendrix, Steve Miller and Marshall Crenshaw

SG = Tony Iomi and Angus Young

Telecaster = Keith Richards and Ron Wood

Flying V = Randy Rhodes and Jimi Hendrix

Explorer = James Hetfield

Iceman = Daron Malakian(who has since switched to an SG)

EDIT:

Firebird = Johnny Winter and Tom Petty

Tool made me love Silverburst LP Customs, but I honestly have insane love for Jaguars, Telecasters and Jazzmasters, and there are too many bands I listen to to list that use them.
#25
Matt Tuck got me into RR and his sigs
Luke Kilpatrick got me into the LTD double cutaway guitar (next guitar is gonna be an MH250)
and for les pauls they are just insanely awesome and they can be so ****ing brutal.
