122 Tommy Thayer
123 Mike Turner

Very creative, tasteful unconventional guitarist. Olp was garbage after he left. That just shows you how important he really was to them

Very underrated, especially by OLP.. Without OLP they lost their way! Check out his new stuff on Crash Karma!

124 Doug Boyle

Truly brilliant, a virtuoso in every respect! Amazing performer on stage, with a unique gift for soloing! He had a special talent for making his guitar sing, for bending notes, and making unreal sounds! But, like Robert Plant's amazing solo career-- WAY underrated!

125 John Petrucci John Petrucci John Peter Petrucci is an American guitarist, composer and producer. He is best known as a founding member of the progressive metal band Dream Theater.

The most underrated guitarist ever. He is probably the fast shredder alive and he plays his shredding-arpegios with more emotion than the most guitarists. Also his style is very varied from slow and deep solos to heavy and very dark distorted riffs. Very underrated player

John Petrucci is an amazing guitarist that I love and is a personal inspiration

He Play's Neoclassical Like Yngwie But He Dosn't Just Shred He Plays With Felling Too And Rhapsody Of Fire Is An Italian Power Metal Band So Of Course He's Underrated. My Opinion He's Better Than Malmsteen

127 John Williams
128 Frank Hannon - Tesla

He is without a doubt the most underrated guitarists ever. Especially since he was not on this list and because a lot of the people who have done this list have probably never heard of him. Search Tesla forevermore and change your mind now! M/

Have a listen to the "Blues Helping" album by his late 60's band called "Love Sculpture", especially the tune entitled "The Stumble".

Technically excellent in hgis early work and great versitiliy from shredding to picking!
