    Andres Segovia might be the one who has "contributed most to the guitar and the recognition of it", back when it was only associated with the lower classes, and never seen in any widely played music considered as superior in society.
    What he did was not only to play classical guitar to high society, but also he hired and paid the great composers of the time to write legit classical music for the guitar, which was not being done because only scoundrels played guitar.

    I'd agree though that in terms of the Telecaster, there have been lots of great players putting it in the mainstream and knocking us out with the next jaw dropping advancement, but Leo Fender is the only man who has done more than any of the players to advance the Telecaster.

    Personally I guess Robbie Robertson was the beginning for me, though I don't consider it possible or realistic to isolate a single artist as being most important or best.

    As far as Segovia being important to me personally, I gotta say I prefer the guitar music of scoundrels.
