I've always been a big fan of Justin Hayward. I know the Moody Blues have kind of jumped the shark and I really wish they would either make a new album (Michael Pinder would make it even better) or stop touring. It makes me sad to see them out there trotting out Tuesday Afternoon for my mom and her friends.
None of that, however, can take away that beautiful sound that comes from everywhere. Justin is a frontman because that's his job in the band. He's a guitarist for the same reason. It's never been a showcase for him, it's always been in support of the music they were all trying to make. Even if he wasn't a very good guitar player (think what you like), that quality in itself makes him a great guitar player.

I feel like I'll be called a sissy for this, but I'd go with Peter Frampton. You almost hear nothing about him yet he's still touring and making new music. I saw him earlier this year in concert not knowing many of his songs besides "Baby I Love Your Way," "Show Me the Way," and "Do You Feel Like We Do." The problem is the first two I mentioned above are pretty much all you hear of him, yet he covers many different genres and sub-genres. He's really an amazing player, but the songs you always hear aren't really meant to showcase the guitar, yet he's done such a wide variety of material that does.

I would say Yngwie Malmsteen, when he first started out he was very much classic rock but now his music music is leaning more to metal.

But he is extremely underrated, he inspired generations of guitarists and influenced the guitar sound of todays heavy rock/metal. (I would say rock in general but since todays rock sounds alot like pop its now heavy rock or metal)

Before his solo career he was in a band called Humble Pie with Steve Marriott. Amazing band, amazing guitar playing. Check out Performance Rockin' the Fillmore to see what I mean.

I wasn't going to post but I can't believe I don't see any mention of Frank Zappa on here. I got into him a few years ago and couldnt believe I hadn't heard of his guitar skills before. No one ever mentions him in the same breathe as hendrix, clapton, page, etc. but he's right there with them imo. He's one of the best songwriters in classic rock history (even if his lyrics were more humorous than serious), and a ridiculous guitarist(see muffin man, stinkfoot, watermelon in Easter bay, anything off shut up and play your guitar). He was one of the most versatile and diverse musicians ever too, i never understand why I don't hear many people mention zappa as one of the best ever, when in my opinion he is.
