Most under rated guitarist?

Not really a "Who's better then who" thread. Just curious what people think.

For me, Alex Lifeson is just fantastic, and completely under rated. Hes definitely one of my favorites, for sure.

Ron Thal. He plays simple songs, and even though his solo stuff is impossible to play it makes me want to improve my playing.

Edit: Not all his songs are simple. But he can keep it simple.
