Mine isn't on there but I'm torn between Marty Friedman, Marco Sfogli and Paul Masvidal.
No ego-inflating quotes nor stupidly long signatures to be found here.

Move along.

Bands/Artists of the month; Marco Sfogli, Marco Sfogli and Marco Sfogli .

I couldn't choose between the following:

-Misha Mansoor
-John Petrucci
-Steve Vai
-Chris Letchford
-Travis Levrier
-Paul Waggoner
-A.J. Minette
-Luke Hoskin

Those are my favorite guitarists and ones I look up to and really idolize.

I would say Alex Lifeson(Rush) or John Petrucci(Dream Theater), but they are not on the list

and then there's free jazz, which isn't even for musicians.

As my old guitar teacher once said: Metal really comes from classical music. The only difference is pinch harmonics, double bass, and lyrics about killing goats.

Johnny Marr or Mick Ronson. Seriously, how could Ronno and Marr not make the poll? What kind of crap do you listen to?

Then don't make it a poll. I don't see how that wasn't obvious.

Or - and I might be thinking outside the box here guys - just don't make the thread in the first place?

TS, do you really think in the 10 years this forum (the largest forum dedicated to guitars on the internet) has been active that nobody has thought to make a "your favourite guitarist" thread?
My name is Danny. Call me that.

From the options you've given I would have to say Hendrix. I love lighting up and listening to that fuzz!
