13 Arjen Anthony Lucassen
14 Robby Valentine

Although not a guitarist of the caliber of some of the others on this list, he's a Dutch singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist that you might want to check out if you're into Queen or the Beatles. Piano is his first instrument and he's pretty good at it and he's decent on guitar as well. But his voice and songwriting capabilities are awesome. Some of his songs and vocals sound a lot like Queen and his band ("Valentine") even tours with Brian May's band sometimes. He did an album with Valensia (another good Dutch band to check out) and it's very Beatle-ish.
