Since everyone has already named the obvious I give you Tony McAlpine & Dave Weiner.

Even though Eddie & Stevie have done instrumental songs, I don't think they qualify as instrument guitar players.

Little solace comes
to those who grieve
as thoughts keep drifting
as walls keep shifting
and this great blue world of ours
