Most distinctive sounding guitarists?

I was just thinking about guitarists that have very distinctive styles. Guys who you automatically would know it's them playing, even if you didn't know the song.
The top two I can think of are Zakk Wylde and Eddie Van Halen. Both have incredibly distinctive sounds.

Yup. I dislike Rage, but still, they're distinctive. Well, by distinctive, I mean they all sound the exact same.

I can spot a George Lynch solo or jam from a mile away. IMO, Lynch has the most distinguished tone and style. Mr Scary rules!!
