How the hell is this guy only 204? Has nobody heard Cliffs of Dover?

Even on the list of underrated, he's underrated - Plonderss

EJ should be at least Top 20! This guy can play circles around most so-called "Guitar-Gods"!

124 Tommy Thayer
125 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!

126 Doug Boyle

Truly brilliant, a virtuoso in every respect! Amazing performer on stage, with a unique gift for soloing! He had a special talent for making his guitar sing, for bending notes, and making unreal sounds! But, like Robert Plant's amazing solo career-- WAY underrated!

127 Luca Turilli

He Play's Neoclassical Like Yngwie But He Dosn't Just Shred He Plays With Felling Too And Rhapsody Of Fire Is An Italian Power Metal Band So Of Course He's Underrated. My Opinion He's Better Than Malmsteen

128 John Williams

He is without a doubt the most underrated guitarists ever. Especially since he was not on this list and because a lot of the people who have done this list have probably never heard of him. Search Tesla forevermore and change your mind now! M/

Ace is one of the top 5 underrated guitarists of all time. Period. Whoever put Tommy Thayer on this list is making me sick

135 Wolf Hoffman

He is a genius just listen to songs like head over heels or balls to the wall by Accept

136 Ian D'sa
