maybe it's just me but I think just about every well renown "shred" guitarist plays the acoustic guitar well.

The list of shred players who suck at acoustic is a harder list to come by.

Al Di Meola and John McLaughlin are by far my favorites for pick style acoustic guitar but they are arguably acoustic players first and not really rock shred guys anyway so I won't post their stuff. Another guy in somewhat similar terrain would be Jorge Strunz (and Ardeshir Farah as well).


Vicente Amigo is a really good player and I just saw him live recently but he is way off point for this thread.

Of the rock guys, Vinnie Moore would be my choice. I think he gets a better and fuller sound than other rock guys and seems more comfortable on acoustic. Steve Morse as well.

Almost forgot my favorite unexpected shred (much more than just shred but still...) acoustic guitar from an unexpected source: Frank Gambale!

The solo is insane as is the unison melody played later on in the tune.

Whatever happened to Buckethead anyway?
He puts out a few albums now and then. This was from last year.....
