Beiber has a fair amount of talent as a young musician underneath that disposable pop for tween girls. In terms of chops I don't think Taylor is much of a player, though I am a fan of his music. Campbell was a typical Nashville monster guitarist.

I've said the same thing about the Bieber - but usually get laughed at for saying it.

As for underrated acoustic players, someone recently reminded me of Mark O'Connor - acoustic EVERYTHING!

This guy's probably known more for his ethereal electric guitar sound from the 60's but I've always appreciated his acoustic stuff.

Elliot Smith was awfully good at fingerpicking folk melodies and using great chord changes in his rhythm playing. I also really enjoy Stephen Stills on the acoustic. My favorite guitarist of all time has to be Chris Whitley - just a singular , unique musical talent. I guess Stills isn't really that under rated , but when he plays acoustic his timing and phrasing blow me away.

very cool to see Bromberg called out.  +1 on Kaukonen as well.

A guy that I've enjoyed for years, but doesn't get a ton of press is Willy Porter out of Milwaukee. Hot shot guitar player who has focused more on songwriting than creating platforms to blow you away with his chops, but man, he's got the chops.

forgive the guild promo...but it shows a bit of his prowess.

I don't get how famous and quite successful guitar players can be considered underrated. OTOH, what's the point of naming someone who no one's ever heard of, without giving some indication of his/her skill (thanks Tio). Might as well just make up a name. Irving Watson, of Mousetrap Saskatchewan is the most underrated player ever! Too bad you'll never hear him.

The whole point is that we really needed for you to say something witty and cool. It keeps US from dozing off talking about strings and tuner buttons.

Nick Drake.

+1. And John Martyn and Richard Thompson (since we're talking Brit acoustics (although Thompson's no slouch on electric))

+1 unclrob

He was the big surprise to me at the annual "Guitar Town" which happens in Copper Mountain resort in CO every August.  This is where I got to stand within inches of Tommy Emmanuel (he was playing his Maton) as he just mesmerized with a non-stop hour+ show.

For those of you in Colorado or anywhere near:  "Guitar Town" is a pilgrimage-worthy destination.  An entire weekend of free concerts by the guitar gods, known and relatively unknown.

I'm not sure what qualifies someone as underrated? If it's just obscure, maybe Duck Baker. I agree with the mentions of Bromberg, too

This is my second post, but:

there are a couple of CCM artists who can play quite well but aren't really recognized for their playing. Steven Curtis Chapman comes to mind as well as Josh Wilson. Jimmy Needham isn't too bad either.

I'm going to have to say Jim Hurst, he's fairly well know in the progress bluegrass circle, although his style is a bit jazzy with a mix of funk, but not really out side of it. He is phenomenal! He is currently touring solo and has done a couple albums solo aswell. You'd never now that he's the only one playing until you either look up or read the liner notes!. In the past he has toured and recorded as a duet with bassest Missy Raines and with the Claire Lynch Band.
