okay, so im learning and studying solos of people like Angus Young (ACDC) and Jimmi Page (Led Zeppelin) and i am planning to study and learn solos of more people who i am influenced musically by (in the solos mostly) jimmi hendrix, angus young, jimmi page, slash, all based in blues rock. Any advice on studying a guitarist that isnt in this territory but that is good to study?

for nothing but solos. try Mikael Akerfeldt, for other stuff as well, try Russell Lissack.
They're both very different from the stuff you listed.

Django reindhart?
I Find that i kind of expand in both directions from the starting point
I started liking classic rock, and dug deeper back to the blues and simultaneously forward to thrash & groove metal

How about virtuoso guitarists like Eric Johnson, Joe Satriani?
EDIT: Upon further inspection of your first post, try some George Benson and Joe Pass.

Learn solos that aren't originally played on guitar. Miles Davis solos are a great way to expand your horizons.

Branch out into the realm of Jazz. There are some amazing guitarists there.

nice advise there, i did a little part of a BB king solo just in this moment, i found it pretty cool because i found different ways to use the scales, even the pentatonic scale, so nice advise also

If you want speed and soul, study the hell out of Al DiMeola, studying that man helped me out tremendously.
