Most of the rest listed here are hard and fast, which is great.
However, McGuinn's "ringing Rickenbacker" offered one of the most distinctive sounds in rock history.

A little too much emphasis here on speed and loudness; why not some beauty?
McGuinn's "Ringing Rickenbaker" is the sweetest and most distinctive guitar sound in rock history.
Plaintive and nostalgic, this solo brings forth the memory of summers long past.
The way this solo is executed��" especially on the band's 2012 Clockwork Angels Tour��" is unmistakably brilliant. It's fast-paced, psychedelic, incorporates a variety of note progressions and tones, and is simply gut-wrenchingly otherworldly.
Such a beautiful solo. The highlight of a great song. Both solos are good, but it's the second one that's just pure awesomeness - Shake_n_Bake13
Should be in top 10 at least
Most soulful solo ever, should be higher - ACDC-
