There is no best, that's personal taste. Here's some off the top of my head that I think are the most talented.

Petrucci
Vai
Satriani
E. Johnson
Malmsteen
S. Morse
C. Broderick
Abasi
Govan
S. Lane

You may not like their style, or what they write, but any of those guys can play pretty much anything on the guitar. With that in mind, I don't want to sound rude but nothing Radiohead, or of that nature belongs on any "best guitarist" list. Being popular doesn't make you a virtuoso, or in some cases even a good player.

So far I'd say John Frusciante or Jacck White, Considering they are FREAKIN AMAZING, also they seem to be the ones coming up the most.

This Top 5 plus Mayer.

Cuomo? Really? I love Weezer but really?

Does Buddy Guy count?

There are some great modern guitarists, however I don't prefer all their music. Tom Morello and Jack White are great....but apart from a few songs I wouldn't go out of my way to listen to them, or others - for that matter. My favorites are good/great guitarists that play music I prefer:

John Squire (Stone Roses)
Noel Gallagher/Gem Archer (Oasis)
Graham Coxon (Blur)

I love Serge, not the most technical guitarist, but Kasabian rocks.

John Mayer - the dude can shred, watch his live stuff on you tube.

Mike Eizinger - the dude is a magician with effects/pedals/distortions

John Frusciante - again, live performance are incredible

Adam Jones from Tool - nuff said.

Dick Dale- I know he isn't "modern", but I saw him live last night in Annapolis, MD at a tiny little place that hold maybe 200 people. It was AWESOME.

Im sure I will think of more soon

How modern is modern exactly? A few that come to mind are Daniele Gottardo, Dave Martone, and Shane Gibson. Of course there are plenty of others, but those guys are not as well known as someone like Shawn Lane or Guthrie Govan.
