Does this count? It isn't guitar only, but some of the other ones posted here were not either.

Sweep the leg.
Of the top of my head I can only think of these two. I think everything else I think of would be guitar solos...
Gone, but not forgotten... RIP RP
Raybeats only put out two albums in the early 80s, and the better one (It's Only a Movie) is out of print.. although I have a copy
Some of them have gone on to form Los Straitjackets.
I notice some folks listing Link Wray's "Rumble".. interesting how much trouble that song caused.
we all know of songs in the 50s being banned for supposedly suggestive lyrics.. but Rumble had no lyrics and was banned in a lot of places because of the 'invitation to delinquency" it's sound presented.
Link's a southern Marylander.. from accokeek. If you know a Wray in SOMD, chances are they're related.
It's nice he's getting his due.. he's a grandfather,, inventor of the power chord and supposedly fuzz distortion. (He got mad because he couldn't get the sound he wanted and kicked a hole in his amp.. and then it was perfect.)
Some Link Wray classics
Some more instrumentals worth hearing
sandy bull is interesting. think you've heard Chuck berry? guess again. let it play.
The Stones in the early early days
OK, a few words, but it's such a great tune. Seriously, if you can't groove to this, you may be dead.
if folks are interested, I'll post some more later. Right now I've got to get back to work.
In loose order but For the love of God is my absolute favorite solo guitar piece.
Steve Vai - For the love of God, Warm Regards, Tender surrender
Stevie Ray Vaughan - Lenny, Riviera Paradise, (and it's not a solo but it is one of my favorite all time songs.... TIn Pan Ally)
Jeff Beck - Amazing Grace
Al Di Meola - Race with the devil on a Spanish Highway
Special mention - any Joe Satriani
This has always been a favorite of mine. Steve Howe is amazing.

Gilmour has a beautiful sax (yes, David Gilmour on sax) instrumental called Red Sky at Night on his On An Island LP.

I had an album he did with Robert Gordon that was just about the best rockabilly music in existence...
Cuts included My Gal is Red Hot, Flying Saucers Rock n' Roll, a great version of Summertime Blues, 20 Flight Rock, Sea Cruise...

That instrumental bridge from "Don't Fear the Reaper" is so criminally underrated it hurts.
My home town was carved out of swampland.
Surprised no one has mentioned Surfing with the Aliens by Joe Satriani yet. Also - and this will probably tick off some purists - I really like the Head Cutting duel by Stevie Vai which is from a pretty mediocre film Crossroads.
