45 Michael Romeo Michael Romeo Michael James Romeo is an American guitarist and a founding member of the progressive metal group Symphony X.
46 Steve Lukather Steve Lukather

The most underrated player in the most underrated band in the music industry. Lukather has it ALL. He applies his incredible jazz licks and scales to soft and hard rock songs, creating amazing, unique sounds. I can't believe buckethead is 3rd... that's ridiculous. The rest of the top ten is terrible as well. Lukather should definitely be in top 5.

Being a technical guitarist has to do with precision, finesse, playing by ear and actually having control over your instrument and not just running scales or arpeggios over chord changes but playing something that you hear in your head and applying it to the instrument. There is no best guitarist it is all subjective but some guitarist are just more technically skill than others. That doesn't mean you can you can't have preference to who you'd rather listen to. That's why there's democracy so we can have things like this and have freedom to have a opinion.
