How about Herb Alpert. This is the guy that made me take up the trumpet.
I liked the album cover too.

I have heard some of Gib's musical work and it's quite impressive.
BTW Gib, I play a vintage Gibson Ripper bass guitar, as well as the banjo and acoustic guitar.
As far as choosing favorites per the OP, this would be tough..as I like so many in various genres.
Some Icons of mine would probably be Robert Fripp, David Gilmour, Jimmy Page, Adrian Belew, Martin Barre....I could go on and on....and on.
I like this old dated video of Belew...if you ever see him live, you can tell he really loves what he does and has fun.

While not strictly an instrumentalist, I still feel like Michael Hedges deserves mention here.
The first time I ever saw the guy was on Don Kirschner; he played a custom instrument which was a double neck acoustic; bass on the top and six-string on the bottom. It was set up as an open tuning and the song he played featured tapping, hammers and pull offs almost the whole way.
It was one of the most amazing performances I've ever seen!
They didn't call him "the guitarist from another planet" for nothing!"Social networking" is an oxymoron.

About the only styles of music I have no appreciation for his Rap, Hip Hop and Death Metal.
Thanks for the plug there cool.
I play a Gibson Les Paul, an Ibanze Roadstar, a Hondo acoustic 12 string, Fender Bass,(squire with new high end pickups...forgot brand), Kanstul Trumptet and Yamaha Keyboards.
One more for the list....Wes Montgomery.

I liked Eric Clapton better when he was on drugs and I do like Neil Young's music (with Crazy Horse), but his off key chords and singing get on my nerves after a while."If anybody can draw on the power, where do we put the meter?" - JP Morgan before pulling Tesla funding

not your usual axe but he does some weird things with it:
I'm not into country music but I can appreciate anyone with talent and this guy is on another level.
