obviously you have your legends like jimi hendrix, eric clapton, stevie ray vaughan, bb king, buddy guy, steve vai, jimmy page, duane allman etc...
theres alot of good talent out there now though too: derek trucks, warren haynes, john mayer, mike mccready, john frusciante...
its tough to pick one single player who's the best because people have different strengths and play different types of music...

Kirk Hammett. Rhandy Rhodes, Jake E.Lee, Alex Scholnik.......soooooooo many
