121 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.

122 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

123 Minoru Shin Kojima
124 You Adachi - Dead End
125 Warner E. Hodges
126 Olivier Lapauze

128 Eddie Hazel

Just listen to maggot brain the greatest guitar solo of all time. Not to mention the fact that he help creat the funk genre with parliament funkadelic

129 Ian D'sa
130 Tommy Iommi

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

Not underrated in the slightest. Most of the time he is actually very overrated. - Metal_Treasure

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.

132 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!

133 Izzy Stradlin Izzy Stradlin Jeffrey Dean Isbell, better known by his stage name Izzy Stradlin, is an American guitarist, singer and songwriter.
134 Tim Mahoney

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

135 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.

136 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

137 Daron Malakian Daron Malakian Daron Vartan Malakian is an Armenian–American singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and record producer.
138 Alexi Laiho Alexi Laiho

What is Alexi Laiho doing this low? Alexi is greatest guitarist ever. - Disturbedpotato

140 Rivers Cuomo Rivers Cuomo Rivers Cuomo is an American musician and singer-songwriter. He is best known as the lead vocalist, lead guitarist and songwriter of the alternative rock band Weezer, with whom he has recorded eleven studio albums.

His solos are amazing - Gruunge
