Fred has a degree in jazz guitar. He's got great chops, just doesn't show it for the sake of playing fast like some people. Hence, he could be considered underrated.

Ive never heard anything too impressive. But again, I still like his playing, but it's clear he's a better acoustic player than electric. Many people love him so they'll say he's the best, but he's just a favorite.

For me the best guitarists are the ones who show constraint in their playing and only shred when the timing is write
so saying that:

Russel Lissack from Bloc Party
Garrett Zablocki from Senses Fail
Justin Shekoski from Saosin
Chris Carrabba from Dashboard Confessional
Munaf Rayani from Explosions in the Sky

I have learned everything I know on guitar from those 5 guys

Mike Kinsella, his work in American Football and Owen is amazing. He has such a diverse style of guitar it's exciting to hear what he writes next. Not to mention many of times it's on acoustic and not electric.

Fred isn't thaat good. I mean, I like his playing, but nothing is ridiculous. I've heard great guitar players and I shake my head and say "that's ridiculous," and then I walk off pissed for some reason.
i have heard fred shred some of the most insane riffs ive ever heard when he was messing around at this cmj event a few years ago.
for me though i love the guitar parts he has created. theyre often smart and well crafted. look at a lot of what he did on WYWTB. he has written some of my favorite guitar parts. he has a great understanding of what works in a song guitar wise.

Kevin Devine is unreal, he plays simple chords but just adds his own style to make it sound unique

And I thought Thomas Erak would've been one of the first people mentioned in a thread like this on this site.

Evan Weiss and Mike Kinsella definitely. As songwriters, they're amazing. They come up with some really unique guitar parts that just sound fucking good.

Oh and Tom Delonge.
