Jeff beck , joe perrry(ala dick wagner and the other guy who really played on their early good albums - eddie, mike oldfield,
Thelonius Monk (obviously not a guitarist but his unique approach to music was inspirational)
Eddie Van Halen
Early Peter Frampton (when he was 18-22)
Definitely some cool players - gotta love the Robben Ford and John Cippolina choices from dvan, and it's great to see Harvey Mandel mentioned by birdman - he was a big influence on a lot of serious folks, ranging from Van Halen to David Torn.

HMMM OKAY FIRST
NO ONES FASTER THAN RANDY RHOADS #1
AND ERIC CLAPTON CAN PLAY DAMN GOOD TOO
RANDY RHOADS IS PROBABLY MY MOST INFLUENCED GUITARIST NOT BUY HIS PLAYING STYLE BUT BY HIS LIFE i READ HIS BIOGRAPHY AND IT WAS REALLY INTERESTING. PLAYING STYLE WOULD BE EDDIE VAN HALEN BUT IT'S A DRAW CUZ RANDY WAS AND STILL IS ONE FAST MOTHER FUCKER IF ANY ONE SAYS THEY CAN OUT GUITAR HIM I WOULD BE REALLY SUPRISED AND IF THEY DO THEY NO OFFENSE( THEY PROBABLY PLAY PUNK ROCK) BUT THE THING IS WHY DON'T ANYBODY PLAY GUITAR ANYMORE I HEAR ALL THESE SONGS BUT NOT LIKE ANY THING LIKE VH OR OZZY ITS JUST A BUNCH OF GARBAGE IN MY OPINION JUST THE SAME AS RAP. NOT RACIST BUT FEEL RAP
Here's my list in no particular order:
Jeff Beck - funny how everything just fits right
Django Reinhardt - two fingers? How'd he doodat?
Wes Montomery - Phrasing, phrasing, phrasing - oh and a thumb!
Steve Morse - amazing technique - some of the most awe inspiring passages I've ever heard
George Benson - I can't copy his licks for the life of me
Charlie Christian - his chord based solos helped me break out of the pentatonic rut
John Petrucci - speed freak - excellent right hand picking to model after
Angus Young - pure frenetic soloing with no gimmicks
Stevie Ray Vaughan - reintroduced me to what the pentatonic scale should sound like
Andres Segovia - still treasure my 20 studies for the guitar (by Fernando Sor), Andres Segovia Edition
the meshuggah guitarists are pretty insane--talk about being polyrhythmic!, some of their polyrhythmic riffs are really, really complex and executed very precisely.
First and foremost.. Mark Kendall <Great White> he certainly wasn't the most inovative guitarists in the world, nor was he a speed demon, but he had TONS of style and technuiqe!
Glenn Tipton <Judas Priest>
KK Downing <Judas priest>
Eddie Van Halen
What's his name from Jakyl..
I don't really have 10, buit these are my influences
Stevie Ray Vaughan-Absolutely my #1 inlfuence, one of a kind guitarist
Jimi Hendrix-Inspired just about every guitarist in the world never again will we see a guitarist like this god
Albert Collins-Had just about the best tone I have ever heard
Clapton-Can play the blues with anyone
Otis Rush-Soulful lyrics and guitar licks
