By far Stevie Ray Vaughan, no one will ever be close to the power he captured through his instrument. He used it as his voice. It is so amazing to watch him play on TV, it was a sad day when he died. Second is a tie between Eric Johnson and Phil Keaggy, both are equally amazing....

I'm with MRGREEN, Lincoln Brewster is a top notch guitarist! Here are my other favorite guitarists for one reason or another:
> Dwayne Larring (formerly) of Sonicflood
> Stu G. of Delirious
> Tyler Burkum of Audio Adrenaline
> whoever played guitar for DC Talk on Jesus Freak and Welcome to the Freak Show
> Scott Kerr (formerly) of Five Iron Frenzy
> Jennifer Knapp
> whoever plays guitar for Luna Halo
> Bronson (formerly) of the OC Supertones
> David Crowder

I notice that there are a lot of secular guitarists mentioned, and I don't blame you all, cuz there are a lot of guitarists that don't use their talents to glorify God that are just plain good. Anyway these are ones that I happen to think are really good cuz I used to listen to them:
> Pete Townsend of the Who
> Carlos Santana
> Terry Kath (formerly) of Chicago
> Stevie Ray Vaughn
> Jimi Hendrix
> Eric Clapton [props to RockinRonnie for knowin' Cream!]
> Jeff Beck
> Jimmy Page of Led Zepplin
> Steve Howe of Yes
> Duane Allman of the Allman Brothers Band

Anyway, that's my two cents!

If we're going with who we think has the best talent, I'd have to go with Stevie Ray Vaughn. If it's who's style you like the best it's a tie between the Third Day guys and the combo of Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds.

Others (for both talent and style):
Jimi Hendrix
Al Anderson (lead guitarist, not rhythm, for Bob Marley from 74-80, check out the live version of 'Heathen')
Peter Tosh
Eric Clapton
Robert Johnson
Ben Harper (particularly on the Weissenborn lap-slide)
James Taylor
Jimmy Page
Ed Cash
Jennifer Knapp
Bebo Norman

I think I forgot to add a few of my personal favorites:

Lindsay Buckingham (I think that's his name) from Fleetwood Mac
Tom Morello from Rage Against the Machine

Whoever played guitar for Jim Croce was pretty clever too.

and I'll agree, Steven Curtis Chapman is definitely an underrated guitar player. He also is a great singer and songwriter.

And furthermore, I think that the best as far as talent goes, is Phil Keaggy. I mean, you can kinda compare him to other guitarists for a while, but there really isn't anyone who has the same range of genres as Phil. Obviously, Vaughn and Clapton and even Beck are masters in the realm of blues, and have a slight step up on Phil. However, Phil has done a crap load of stuff. I mean, he's hit Jazz and folk pretty heavily, along with a good lot of world music. He messes around quite nicely with more alternate tunings than you can shake a stick at. He's got more tapping and glisses and picking styles than any other guitarist I've seen. He's recently tackled Classical and pulled off an excellent album. And he's always had blues based rock songs and pop songs.
Now, maybe that isn't talent, but I find it most impressive. I reckon if he focused on one aspect or another, he'd just plane soar above most everybody. It is too bad about Stevie. That guy had a lot of skill. And he could have done more with it had he not passed on. Same goes for Hendrix.

Good point, RockinRonnie. I haven't heard much of Keaggy's stuff, but what I have heard is amazing. I read an article on his website (www.philkeaggy.com) not too long ago where he said he uses over 15 different tunings, so many he has trouble remembering them.
I'd also have to add Tom Morello (he's unbelievably innovative).
