123 Frank Zappa Frank Zappa Frank Vincent Zappa was an American musician, songwriter, composer, record producer, actor and filmmaker.

What a shame nobody even knows who he is. Search Peaches en Regalia for a small intro to his 80+ albums. One of the most prolific and talented guitarists/composers the world has ever known.

124 Paco De Lucia Paco De Lucia Francisco Gustavo Sánchez Gomez, known as Paco de Lucía, was a Spanish virtuoso flamenco guitarist, composer and producer.

You won't believe this guy until you see his skills. He has crazy skills on his acoustic guitar. Very fast. - zxm

Every guitarist should listen to Paco

132 Ian D'sa

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

134 Bruce Springsteen Bruce Springsteen Bruce Frederick Joseph Springsteen (born September 23, 1949) is an American musician, singer, songwriter, and humanitarian. He is known for his work with the E Street Band. Nicknamed "The Boss", Springsteen is widely known for his brand of poetic lyrics, Americana, working class and sometimes political ...read more.

Seriously, he is not really primarily known for his guitar work but the intro solo on "Prove it All Night" on the 1978 Darkness tour was just amazing.

135 Frank Marino

Frank can out gun any guitarist on this list. So underrated. Just listen to Mahogany Rush Live and you'll see what I'm talking about. Another great (though cut) song is Johnny B. Goode from California Jam 2. It's a masterpiece of playing complete with the best rendition of "Electric Reflections of War". Hey Zakk Wilde praised him many times.

Holy cow this guy gets the shaft. If you've never heard this guy, then you don't know the definition of underrated. Look him up and tell me I'm wrong. He was doing this stuff in the 70's for crying out loud!

136 Matthew Bellamy Matthew Bellamy Matthew James "Matt" Bellamy is an English musician, singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and compose most famous for being the main vocalist in alternative rock band Muse.
137 Izzy Stradlin Izzy Stradlin Jeffrey Dean Isbell, better known by his stage name Izzy Stradlin, is an American guitarist, singer and songwriter.
138 Tim Mahoney

He should be way lower, has great sound and solo's and is a master on the pedal board...

139 Gary Hoey

Gary Hoey has a lot of good music, mainly instrumental. He's also covered all kinds of music from all kinds of musicians, and he does it so well. He even does Christmas covers. I love his cover for "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch". I also love his covers for "Frankenstein" and Wipe Out". He's such a great guitarist.

140 Matthias Jabs

Seriously nowhere to be found? This guy had one of the best tones in the 80s... Great memorable solos... Hard to imagine the most famous Scorpions songs like Rock you like a hurricane without his solos
