I'm not realy sure how you would define "self taught" most famous guitarists have had lessons at some point. Also, Hendrix learned a few tricks off other guitarists and musicians.
GENERATION 10: The first time you see this, copy it into your sig on any forum and add 1 to the generation. Social experiment.

Autodidact? Seriously? Couldn't you have just said self-taught?

This reminds me of the words of a brazilian writer:

"An autodidact is nothing but a self-taught ignorant".

Wich pretty much doesn't say anything, but I don't have anything else to add.

Well there's always gonna be some person back in history that had to teach himself, because the instrument was just invented, no one could teach him or her how to play. I wouldn't call him ignorant.

Just my two cents. I have nothing more to contribute.

english is not my first language (yes, i know you can tell) so i can't come up with synonyms easily
and since "autodidacta" is not considered a pretentious word in spanish, i tought it was okey in english too

What do we define as "self-taught?" I could say that I've been mostly self-taught (I realize that I'm not famous, but I'm just giving an example) because I've only had four guitar lessons in my life, but everything I know about guitar I've either read from books, copied from famous guitarists (and people I know who play guitar), or learned from watching videos so wouldn't those people be my indirect teachers in some way?

Yeah, but you had nobody to actually give you instruction and teach you how to do it. You figured it out yourself from the books and videos.

So yes, you are self taught.
