I'm a guitarist who has been playing for many years.
I used to sing too but you won't find any vocals on my tracks (so far) - I'm really into instrumental music, I think it's a really under-appreciated form these days.
I haven't played live for many years. I used to play in bands but concentrate on solo playing these days - I find it more satisfying, if not a little more taxing. At least there are no arguements about which songs to play! ;)
I really love Peter Green's early stuff, Clapton, Robert Johnson, Santana, Knopfler.
And a really great Aussie guitarist/singer/songwriter - Jeff Lang.
My main acoustic guitar is a "000" I built myself.
