Not sure that this has been done before, but I thought i'd add a bit of fun to the Electric guitar forum.
Essentially, you take five guitarists (and say which trait of theirs you want the ultimate guitarist to have). For example, here's mine:

The ultimate guitarist would have...

BB King's Experience,
Eric Johnson's tone,
Carlos Santana's emotion,
Satch's technical knowledge,
and Jimi's Originality

Go!

Sgwisgar Swigelf's speed (I KNOW I didn't spell that right...)

Slash's Style

Randy Rhoads...everything.

Carlos Santana's Emotion (as previously stated)

And Joe Satriani's skill.

So basically, we'd be dealing with a bald, Swedish, half black, half Spanish, zombie, seeing as how Randy Rhoads is dead.

Brutal as hell.

Jimi Hendrixs resourfulness and originality
Marty Friedmans Scales (rhandy Rhoads scales too)
Marty Friedmans tone

Steve Vais knowledge of theory

The Mitch Clem formula
1)make jokes about rancid and NOFX (as if they dont already make fun of themselves)
2)make obvious punk puns, possibly related to food
3)make fun of Rancid and NOFX again
4)??????
5)PROFIT (and an army of internet fanboys)

^^I guess. A universally accepted "ultimate guitarist" is rather impossible, because of the different tastes in music people have. But, the point of the game was for individuals to make up what in their own minds would be the ultimate guitarist.
