Lol Zakk Wylde, Eric Clapton, Alexi Laiho... neither of them made the cut?

This post is ridiculous, there is no such thing as a best guitarist due to vast differences in playing styles, nub.

There's been hundreds of these threads.

This is pointless, therefore I reported it.

I would have to say there is no such thing so my answer would be no one!

There is not 1 guitarist out there who is so distinct and diverse and technical that he separates himself from all the other players.

I see a lot of ppl naming Satch for example. There are tons of ppl out there doin the exact same thing as Satch except they dont have the mainstream recognition that he does.

What im basically saying is there is not 1 guitarist out there who i consider the best ever...

This doesn't really work cause if you've got one person saying Dimebag is number one but someone else doesn't like Pantera, then that person will disagree. The only way it would work is if every single person had the exact same style and then all it came down to was technical stuff and speed. Personally my list would be
1. Eric Clapton
2. Jimmy Page
3. Jimi Hendrix
4. Stevie Ray Vaughn
5. Joe Perry
6. John Frusciante
7. Zakk Wylde
8. Dimebag Darrell
9. Slash
10. Eric Johnson

^ Some one was right when he said that no one will ever agree on this. It's just true. We all have our own preferences and music is subjective. There's no way we could say 'best'. These guitarists are in my top 'teir' - meaning I love the music they create and feel as if they have all completely mastered the instrument. In no particular order:

David Gilmour
Mark Knopfler
Eric Clapton
Stevie Ray Vaughan
Warren Haynes
Duane Allman
Buddy Guy
Santana
Eric Johnson
Jimi Hendrix
Jimmy Page
BB King
John Frusciante
Jack White
Joe Bonamassa
Jerry Garcia
Derek Trucks

Obviously some people will disagree, but that is my top tier.

01. Buckethead
02. John Petrucci
03. Joe Satriani
04. Steve Vai
05. Jeff Beck
06. Stevie Ray Vaughan
07. Eric Johnson
08. Jason Becker
09. David Gilmour
10. Duane Allman or Randy Rhoads 0r Frank Zappa or Jimi Hendrix
Buckethead and John Petrucci got into a shred batte. Petrucci went into world domination mode and melted Buckethead's face off. That's why Buckethead wears a mask.

I would add Jeff Beck and Roy Buchanan to my above list. Both great guitarists who I think are severely underrated.

An overrated guitarists thread would be better. Eric Clapton springs to mind, as do Yngwie Malmsteen, Eddie Van Halen, Jimi Hendrix and Jimmy Page, who are all great, but overrated imo.

Underrated guitarists - Jeff Beck, Duane Allman, Frank Zappa, Marty Friedman (who was just as good as Jason Becker in Cacophony and was awesome in Megadeth) and if I were to choose one more, Buckethead, who is my all-time fave guitarist. I also think that Michael Romeo never gets enough regocnition,and he could easily wipe the floor with most guitarists *cough Yngwie *cough.
