    Legend has it that Paganini would sometimes switch to guitar at the end of joint recitals. Paganini was able to play all the violin parts on guitar. Not impossible for fantastic guitarists today, but given the low popularity of guitar relative to the popularity of violin during his time, it is understandable that his violin playing tremendously overshadowed his guitar playing.

    Top 5 that I've seen personally:

    Richard Thompson
    Adrian Belew
    Vernon Reid
    The Edge
    Pete Townsend

    Honorable mention - Victor Wooten is possibly more one with his instrument than anyone else I've ever seen live.
