It's all personnal opinion, but I'm surprised no one has thrown Buckethead into the pile.

There are way too many guitar players how there who fill our top ranks. I'm sure if a hundred people posted we'd get 2 or 3 hundred different guitarists. I'll mention some that haven't made it up here yet.

In no particular order.
Nuno Bettencourt (uh Hello People)
Al Di Meola
Eric Johnson
Alexi Laiho
Django Reinhardt
Michael James Romeo (Symphony X)
Angus Young
Angus Clark (Trans-Siberian Orchestra)
Jimmy Page
Eric Clapton
Glen Tipton
Vinnie Moore
Jimmi Hendrix

I love The Edge from U2.  Say what you want about the fact that he
doesn't get to display a lot of technical prowess in U2's music,
but you just can't mitake his sound for anyone else. I saw them
in Honolulu in December, and it was great.  Edge has 42 guituars
on tour with him, and playes 8-10 of them during any given show.

He gets to have some very non-U2 moments in Bullet the Blue Sky.

I'm also big on B.B. King and Jimi Hendrix, and just
about anyone else who can play some mean blues.

I'm not ranking, I'm just talking about the
guitar sounds that speak to me the most.

Of course, Hendrix, Clapton, Page, SRV, & EVH. I also like Trower, Iommi, BB King,
Billy Gibbons, Duane Allman, Dickey Betts, Gary Rossington & Rick Medlocke (Skynyrd), the Caldwell's (Marshall Tucker Band), Charlie Daniels, (can you tell I prefer Southern Rock?),
Joe Walsh, Rick Derringer, John Fogerty (CCR), and Tom Johnston (the REAL Doobie Brothers).
Actually, there's too many to mention - Can't pick a top one. I guess if I had to pick one,
it'd be Jimi!

What about John 5?  After jamming with him, Les Paul himself was impressed.  He can play ANY style.

Definitely Jimi, Buckethead as well, and Robert Johnson, who no one has equalled as far as I'm concerned.  Of course, we're talking styles and genres here; Buckethead probably can't play Jimi, R.J. probably couldn't play Buckethead, and even Clapton cannot play Robert Johnson (really, I saw a documentary of him trying to).  All the names mentioned thus far are great.

Why is it that no-one remembers to list Mike Campbell, probably the most underrated guitar player of all time literally.  The man has moonlighted on recordings for everyone, besides the fact that he has one of the greatest understated styles of playing of anyone from any era.  I am definately glad someone finally got Chet up there, most definately Gatton......yup.....uh duh, or even the inimitable James Burton.  No one has yet mentioned The Reverend Billy F yet, haven't heard a word about Harrison (say what you want, I dare you to copy his slide licks and make them sound like his).  Definately Campbell though, damn, how do so many guitar players pass him right over.
