I'll throw in Derek Trucks.
The Blues guitarists run away with it, hands down.
1) Eric Clapton (fav: Cream live 2005 - Outside Woman Blues)
2) Jimmy Henrix (fav: Live at Winterland - Killing Floor)
3) BB King (fav: Genious Loves Company - Sinner's Prayer w/ Ray Charles OR [no album release - Thrill is gone w/ Gary Moore)
4) Buddy Guy (fav: Bring 'Em In - The Price You Gotta Pay w/ Keith Richards)
5) SRV (fav: The Essiential SRV - Little Wing)
Worth a listen and threating to break into the list:
Buckethead - Believe it. He's one of the top 10 fastest of all time and his creativiity is limitless ... which also make a great deal of his stuff completely unlistenable and why he didn't make the five. The stuff that doesn't get too weird is downright awesome.
Joe Bonamassa - Totally unappreciated blues guitarist. He has a big following and does world tours but for some reason he just can't crack into the household name group. To be honest, he's a step below the top five but way too good to be so unknown.
amazing guitar blues duel between legendary BB King and irish blues/rock player Gary Moore same video than the other , but the sound came from the CD track
This topic is very debatable but I say Hendrix is first and 2nd is not even close. He could play with either hand and I get chills when I hear his rendition of the Star Spangled Banner. All the other guys are great and some are legends but Hendrix is above all. One guy I personally like and IMO in the top 5 was not mentioned by anyone. Slash!!! His solo's on Sweet Child of Mine and November Rain are 2 of the greatest solo's ever
