Whilst there are plenty of guitar legends still grabbing headlines, at MusicRadar we get just as excited about emerging talent. We’re talking about the players right at the start of their careers, but with all the star quality and talent to ensure we’ll be talking about them in the same breath as the guitar icons in years to come.
This is our pick of the guitarists who turned heads this year. Who is your choice for best new guitarist of 2018?
Last year’s winner: Chris Buck
