I go with Slash, Herman Li and EVH.
Herman Li is actually UNDERrated. He is a very good guitarist but most people think he sucks live because of an old Wacken video where he had problems with the PA system and couldn't hear what he was playing. Go watch Dragonforce live and you'll be amazed.

If you ask the average Joe on the street who the greatest guitarist ever is, they'd tell you it's Jimi Hendrix, and they'd be wrong.

I don't know about overrated, but I always find most bluegrass flatpickers to be quite unexciting when they solo, at least compared to the fiddle, banjo, mandolin, dobro, etc.

I'd probably have to agree with the late Gary Moore that Jimmy Page is the most over rated guitarist. In addition I've been thinking about the whole "Slash is the most over rated" thing I've never really heard people say slash is the best guitarist to ever walk the earth, but I have always heard he's their favourite, maybe people use the two categories interchangeably. My two cents.
#18
Slash, and most metal guitarists.

John Frusciante would be on the top of my list. I don't get why people treat him as the second coming of Christ playing guitar.

Frusciante writes good songs, but he can't sing for shit.

It's because he looks like him if you ask me.
It makes sense if you think about it though - Jesus probably wasn't that good at playing guitar back in the day.

How? I've literally talked about Radiohead with a couple of people in real life. Maybe on the internet.

And if you're talking about Johnny Greenwood, he's actually incredibly underrated. Thom Yorke gets all the attention but Johnny just quietly writes amazing stuff behind the scenes

All guitarists with a big following of hysterical and fanatical people who worship the ground they walk on are overrated in my opinion - overrated, because those crazy people are overrating them.
Rig Winter 2017:

Fender Jazzmaster/Yamaha SG1000
Boss TU-3, DS-2, CS-3, EHX small stone, Danelectro delay
Laney VC30-112 with G12H30 speaker, or Session Rockette 30 for smaller gigs
Elixir Nanoweb 11-49 strings, Dunlop Jazz III XL picks
Shure SM57 mic in front of the amp

EVH isn't overrated, nowadays those guitar licks are cheesy as hell but back in the day that style of playing was never done before.

i'd go with slash, his style has been done a million times before him and better. however he has a great tone.

EVH is certainly overrated, though still a great guitarist. Same goes for Slash, though idk how you can say he has great tone. It's awful, most of the time.

^idk if we can call Alexi overrated, everyone has caught onto the fact that he's incredibly sloppy. Which is a shame, if he'd tighten the screws a little bit, he has a ton of ability.
