    Any genre
    Any style
    Any type of guitar; acoustic, electric, cigar box, whatever, guitar does not matter
    Any era

    Please list one at a time.

    I'll start with - Jeff Beck


    As this slows down in posts, I will add more, and I ask as you think of more please do the same.

    Please feel free to add as many exceptional mind blowing guitarists as you can think of, just by name, one at a time. Thanks. Sorry if this beating a dead horse, but we have had many new folks join up, and our own opinions change, sometimes daily.
