121Mike 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!

122Doug 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!

123John PetrucciJohn 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

125John Williams
126Frank 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/

127Dave Edmunds

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!

128David Grohl
129Paul Weller

So Awesome. One of the great songwriters as well.

130Tommy BolinThomas Richard "Tommy" Bolin was an American-born guitarist who played with Zephyr, The James Gang, and Deep Purple; in addition to maintaining a notable solo career.
131Billy GibbonsWilliam Frederick "Billy" Gibbons is an American musician, singer, songwriter, producer, and actor, best known as the guitarist and lead vocalist of the American rock band ZZ Top.

Can't believe he is not on every guitarists radar! Better listen to " blue Jean blues " one more time! Have mercy! Been waiting on the bus all day! Very good player.

132Ace FrehleyPaul Daniel "Ace" Frehley is an American musician, singer and songwriter best known as the former lead guitarist and founding member of the rock band Kiss.

Ace is one of the top 5 underrated guitarists of all time. Period. Whoever put Tommy Thayer on this list is making me sick

133Wolf Hoffman

He is a genius just listen to songs like head over heels or balls to the wall by Accept

134Ian D'sa
135Tommy Iommi

He�'s a great Guitar Player and plays with "plastic-fingers" he must has more respect.

136Steve Lukather
