141 Daron Malakian Daron Malakian Daron Vartan Malakian is an Armenian–American singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and record producer.
142 Wes Borland Wes Borland Wesley Louden "Wes" Borland is an American rock musician and artist. He is best known as the current guitarist and backing vocalist of the nu metal band Limp Bizkit and as the lead vocalist of the industrial rock band Black Light Burns.

Even though I don't like Limp Bizkit, I think Wes is a great guitarist.

143 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.
144 Billy Corgan Billy Corgan William Patrick "Billy" Corgan Jr. is an American musician, songwriter, producer, television writer, poet, and professional wrestling promoter best known as the lead singer, guitarist, and sole permanent member of The Smashing Pumpkins.

Billy Corgan can shred on the guitar which has been proved in various solos in some of husband popular songs. "A Song for a Son" is a relatively unknown song by him and the guitar solo in that song is amazing!

Although a lot of smashing pumpkins guitar tracks get credited for being great, people often don't give enough credit to Billy Corgan himself, as a guitarist.
Key tracks: Cherub Rock, Jellybelly - vinniedamiri

145 Allen Collins Allen Collins
146 Stevie Stevens
147 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.
148 Tommy Thayer
149 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!

150 Satchel
151 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!

152 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

153 John Williams
154 Frank Hannon - Tesla

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/

155 Dave Edmunds

Have a listen to the "Blues Helping" album by his late 60's band called "Love Sculpture", especially the tune entitled "The Stumble".

Technically excellent in hgis early work and great versitiliy from shredding to picking!

156 David Grohl
157 Paul Weller Paul Weller

So Awesome. One of the great songwriters as well.

158 Tommy Bolin Tommy Bolin Thomas Richard "Tommy" Bolin was an American-born guitarist who played with Zephyr, The James Gang, and Deep Purple; in addition to maintaining a notable solo career.
159 Ace Frehley Ace Frehley Paul Daniel "Ace" Frehley is an American musician, singer and songwriter best known as the former lead guitarist and founding member of the rock band Kiss.

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

160 Wolf Hoffman

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