I know, I know....
It's like when my wife makes cookies and she tells me to only eat 5....:D
Plus, I mentioned that after the first 3 guys, the remaining 10 are tied for 4th place, so technically I should ADD one more name for 5th place......

I'd love to see someone do a statistical analysis on these responses. And for fun, on a similar thread over at sevenstring.org from a few months back, which was weighted much more heavily in the Abasi/Bulb/Thordendal/Petrucci/Akerfeldt area.

After the top two, I have so many "top" guitarists that is silly to exclude any.
