Lenny Breau. If you like "jazz guitar" and haven't heard him, then go fix that quickly. A "guitarist's guitarist," no major commercial success, drugged/drank himself to death, the usual unfortunate story. Best heard, imho, playing solo or in a duet. Unbelievably tasty, fluid playing that's kind of like a jazz/flamenco/country/classical hybrid that I can't think of anything else that comes close to.
5 O'Clock Bells/Mo' Breau
is a good cd (all solo), but I just recently got Standard Brands
(acoustic duets with Chet Atkins) and was totally floored.
