121 Warner E. Hodges
122 Olivier Lapauze
123 JJ Cale
124 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

125 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

126 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.

127 Steve Lukather Steve Lukather
128 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!

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

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

131 Glenn Tipton Glenn Tipton

Being #205 in this list, tells us that he's terribly underrated. - ShahryRKnoT

132 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.

133 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

134 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.

135 Alexi Laiho Alexi Laiho

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

136 Adrian Smith - Iron Maiden Adrian Smith - Iron Maiden Adrian Frederick "H" Smith is an English guitarist, best known as a member of Iron Maiden, for whom he writes songs and performs live backing vocals on some tracks.
137 Stevie Stevens
138 Carlos Santana Carlos Santana Carlos Santana audio is a Mexican and American musician who first became famous in the late 1960s and early 1970s with his band, Santana, which pioneered a fusion of rock and Latin American music.
139 Tommy Thayer
140 Mike Turner

Very creative, tasteful unconventional guitarist. Olp was garbage after he left. That just shows you how important he really was to them

Very underrated, especially by OLP.. Without OLP they lost their way! Check out his new stuff on Crash Karma!
