Most underrated and over rated guitarists?

Who do you think are the most underrated and over rated guitarists?

For me, most overrated is Santana, and underated, Steve Hacket

Just because someone (Slash) is well known, does NOT make them overrated.

I'm sure you can find many guitar hero players, who if you ask will say that either Slash or Herman Li is the greatest guitarist to ever walk the earth. I almost garuntee it.
