eric johnson, neil zaza, yngwie malmsteen (kinda), check out canon rock by funtwo covered by a guy named jerry c, jeff beck maybe? shawn lane, he's kinda jazzy. there's a lot of em out there, you just have come ot the right place.

neither is great. The Fender is bad though, unlike the Behringer which sounds so bad that it makes you want to stab out your own eardrums with a blunt pencil . hope that was helpful.

My favourites are: Petrucci & Timmons.

And more jazzy players like: Gambale, Holdsworth, Lane.

Instrumental bands: Liquid Tension Experiment

Bands incorporating virtuoso elements: Dream Theater, Outworld, Angra, Symphony X, Nevermore, Eidolon, Jag Panzer.
Quest for "the tone": pending.
#5
John Petrucci
Paul Gilbert
Yngwie Malmsteen
Buckethead
Dave Weiner
Tony MacAlpine

You may know the last two as they are also steve vai's other guitarists (And macalpine is the keyboardist too)

Also look at

Jason Becker
Michael Lee Firkins
Marty Friedman
Blues Saraceno


and I'll second Eric Johnson too
Actually called Mark!

eric johnson has some vocal stuff too. like trail of tears and emerald eyes, but those are also masterpieces just like cliffs of dover or trademark.

John Petrucci
Eric Johnson
Marty Friedman
Joe Stump
Jason Becker
Michael Angelo Batio
Yngwie Malmsteen

Btw "jamrockradio"

Canon Rock was written by JerryC.
The best cover is by FunTwo.
(Imo, the cover is better than the original... FunTwo re-wrote some arpeggios to be more melodic.)

Yngwie Malmsteen is my personal favorite, but Steve Vai is really close!

Right on! I love Jason Becker's playing, though I'm not a huge fan of Batio>

Tony MacAlpine has been doing solo stuff for years before he was with Vai, and Dave Weiner has recently started, Vai got him started off, his album is called "Shove aside the sun" you can hear parts of it on his website, he also does these mini lesosns every week that're on there too.

Trans-Siberian Orchestra does some instrumental songs.

Eric Johnson and Satch are two of my favorites though.

Pretty much anyone on this label;

Tony McAlpine is an amazing musician, just as adept at piano as he is at guitar. In particular I'd check out McAlpine's Edge of Insanity and Vinnie Moore's Mind's Eye. John 5's Vertigo is awesome too, it's a bit more along the lines of Satriani's stuff as opposed to Neoclassical shred like Vinnie Moore.

Well there have been a lot of good suggestions, but I also suggest Guthrie Govan. He's relatively new to the scene and is amazing. Check him out on youtube or something.
I have nothing to put in here.

Buckethead
Paul Gilbert/Racer X
Rusty Cooley <--- I've actually been getting to like his music lately

I really used to hate rock/metal, mainly because of the vocals, with a few exceptions like Deep Purple, Cream, and Queen. So pretty much all I listen to IS instrumental.
