Just because someone (Slash) is well known, does NOT make them overrated.

I'm sure you can find many guitar hero players, who if you ask will say that either Slash or Herman Li is the greatest guitarist to ever walk the earth. I almost garuntee it.

Honestly. A friend of mine told me that Herman Ri was the best guitarist ever. I disagreed with him so then he asked "What? Do you like Slash better?"

To add to my underrated list, I think D Boon of Minutemen was an amazing guitarist that gets no credit at all, even in guitar circles. He has one of the most unique playing styles I've ever heard and with the elastic rhythm section behind him, it just makes it that much more amazing.

I think the most overrated guitarist is Jimi Hendrix. I know how much hee did to improve most of the guitar techniques but when you think of it, he wasn't even fast player. But he was a genious. And most underrated guitarists are all of the Iron Maiden guitarists. They play so ****ing fast solos and riffs but it seems that nobody doesen't even notice that.

Syn is a trendy, generic emo/metal guitar player that got lucky and landed in a band that is in their 15 minutes of fame right now. Jimmy Page revolutionized guitar playing. Better switch those labels kid.
