    Jim gets plenty discussed here.

    Hank not so, though he's one celeb that I occasionally see around town and at guitar stores :cool:

    Not sure if mentioned, I love Stephen Malkmus. His playing style is so cool, lots of weird tunings that make familiar chords sound a little bit "wrong". Doesn't play a tele, mostly a strat but he has a wicked tone too.

    John Cippolina; Quicksilver Messenger Service. Just listen to the crazy, nasty snarls from his guitar in The Fool.

    +1. He is a fantastic player. Love love love his work.

    Also, I'm not sure if he was thrown in, but Wendell Fergueson is a very unheard of, under-discussed player. He has fantastic feel and timing.

    He may have been mentioned, I didn't read all of the posts, but you don't hear much in the states about Bill Nelson. I love his older recordings with Be Bop Deluxe..."Sunburst Finish", "Modern Music", "Axe Victim", etc...etc...

    Has anyone mentioned Mick Abrahams (original guitarist for Jethro Tull)?
    He sure can flail with the best of 'em...

    In case he hasn't been mentioned, Richard Thompson is a guitar god. Unique and compelling style, so much talent.

    He's become one of my favorite guitarists since I started listening to him a couple of years ago. He's amazing, and it amazes me how little attention he gets.
