Well, you're kinda asking two questions here: 1) your favorite guitarists and 2) guitarists better than Page. So I'll take this in the two bits here.

 

1) Favorite guitarists other than Page would have to be

Jeff Martin (The Tea Party, Charles :toast: )

Dave Grohl

Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age)

Kevin Parker (Tame Impala)

Pete Townshend

Jack White

Joe Bonamassa

David Gilmour

Jordan Cook (Reignwolf)

 

2) guitarists better than Page

lol none, Page is honestly the best to my ears. Nothing I've ever heard other people do can compare to what Page can do. And like Charles said, Jeff Martin is like a Jimmy part 2

Wow, seeing someone mention the Tea Party hah.  Good to see such an eclectic taste on here

They were a great band that I enjoyed many moons ago.  If anyone wants to hear a Zeppelin/Jim Morrison fusion, listen their song "The River".

Dave Navarro. Mike McCready. Dave Gilmour. Tom Verlaine. 

Not saying they are better than Page, but those are certainly amongst my favourites.

I can't believe I forgot Tom Verlaine - those first two Television albums are incredible.  Of course their other guitarist - Richard Lloyd - was also fantastic.   So cool that someone on a LZ forum mentioned Tom Verlaine!

He is not the greatest guitarist, but certainly one of the most inventive and original. That solo on Foxhole is like nothing I've ever heard.

ALL of Percy's guitarists were truly and exceptionally great, and therefore my favorites! Does no one here recognize that Robert ALWAYS has the best musicians?

Aside from Jimmy Page, we have: Robbie Blunt, Francis Dunnery, Kevin Scott MacMichael, and Justin Adams, to name a few-- all world-class! However, the most underrated guitarist of ALL TIME might just be Doug Boyle. One critic said Boyle played like "Jimmy Page on steroids." Anyone who has heard Boyle's guitar solos will understand why!
