    There is way too much subjectivity involved in determining what constitutes a “best” guitar player. From a technical standpoint most classical guitarists are probably far superior to people like Hendrix.

    The electric guitar is very forgiving compared to the steel and nylon string acoustic.

    Billy Strings.

    Primarily bluegrass, but he strays off into rock/blues also. He can play anything with strings. Even if you don't care for bluegrass, if you're a guitar aficionado you need to watch him play.

    Don't forget Chet Atkins, Glen Campbell, and Roy Clark, while we're throwing names around.

    Was listening to Roy Clark a couple months ago. Really amazing player. The ‘greatest guitarist’ conversations always seem to be presented through a rock guitar lens, so many amazing guitarists that get left out of the discussion.

    Tony Rice too. And Doc Watson.

    Tommy Emmanuel as well, who idolized Chet Atkins and learned how to play from him. Both heavily influenced by Merle Travis. John Fahey is one of my personal favorites though he is not widely known.

    Yup. Guitarist vs. musician vs. songwriter.

    Unfortunately, I grew up only ever associating Roy Clark with Hee Haw, Hunt's ketchup ads, and that line of guitar books he marketed for a while. Much later in life, I got turned on to how phenomenal a musician he was. Better late than never...

    I'm admittedly not all that well versed in music, but I did grow up listening to Waylon Jennings, whose music I still enjoy. I understand that his steel guitar player, Ralph Mooney is regarded as a legend. That seems to be an underrated instrument, at least these days. I'd be happy to be pointed at evidence to the contrary.

    Angus Young is underrated and has some blues chops. "Ride On" as an example.
