My favourite guitarist (as well as songwriter) would be Sergio Pizzorno, but Kasabian is not exactly about guitar. So if I had to make top 10 list of BEST (not necessarily favourite) guitarists it would be this:

1. John Frusciante
2. David Gilmour
3. Nick McCabe
4. Noel Gallagher
5. Josh Homme
6. Joe Satriani
7. Brian May
8. Joe Bonamassa
9. Matt Bellamy
10. Omar Rodriguez-Lopez

Of course a lot of great artists had to be left out, like Jack White, Carlos Santana, Tom Morello, Johnny Marr, Josh Klinghoffer, Dan Auerbach, Billy Corgan, Mike Oldfield and many more.

And if I had to name the best guitarist of all times, it would be a difficult choice between Jimmi Hendrix and John Frusciante.

Depends on what you call modern. My personal top 10 would have to include John Frusciante, Jonny Greenwood, Tom Morello, Matt Bellamy and Graham Coxon amongst others.
