Can anybody recommend any virtuso-type players on the acoustic?

When I say that, I mean they specialise in acoustic and/or Spanish guitar, not like when Paul Gilbert picks up an acoustic 'cos he's an electric guy.

Know what I mean?

If you haven't done so I would check out Paco de Lucia. The work he did with John McLaughlin and Al di Meola - especially the Friday night in San Francisco cd is awesome.

If I Youtube 'the Aussie guy' I'm likely to find a video of Steve Irwin poking a badger or something.

Ay cono I love his version of Little Wing! I have it saved to my favorites. :)
Youtube him, he has a crapload of different versions, they are all good, but the recording quality varies greatly. He does a few Mark Knopfler tunes too (Romeo and Juliette, Sultans of Swing) that are muy bien as well :wink:

Andres Segovia, Manuel Barruecos and Strunz and Farah are three right off the top of my head.
Barruecos is way out there.....waaaaay out there. I can count on the fingers of one hand the guys who can easily hang with Steve Morse, and Steve isn't in Manuel's league. Not to slight Steve by any means (I'd much rather listen to Steve), but Manuel is as elite as you get. A true Master of the classical guitar.

Even though it's not "shredding" as such, I've always really enjoyed the Gypsy Kings myself. Some of those guys can really play an acoustic. And their music is just beautiful. Reminds me of being on holiday, lol. :)

Rodrigo Y Gabriela is a pretty obvious choice too. Now they CAN shred. Amazing players.
