The Greatest Guitarist Of All Time is ...... the Left-Handed (Fender-playing) God, Jimi Hendrix.
Readers of Gibson.com, along with a few musicians recruited by the site -- including Jeff Cease of The Black Crowes -- were asked to list their top guitarists. Coming out on top is someone more known for playing a Fender rather than a Gibson --- Jimi Hendrix. At number two is a Gibson Les Paul loyalist Jimmy Page, followed by Keith Richards at three, Eric Clapton at four, Chuck Berry at five, Jeff Beck at six, Eddie Van Halen at seven, the late Chet Atkins at eight, blues legend Robert Johnson at nine and Pete Townsend wraps up the Top 10.
