Who are some good instrumental guitarists? Try to give me some names other than the standards like satch, vai, emmanuel, etc... I recently came across John Butler and he helped restore my love for guitar based music. Help me out. Peace!

I was thinking of Cacophony and Racer X, but I wasn't too sure if they counted. Well, they have vocals, but the lyrics are usually really silly, and each verse is just another interruption between solos.
