I stumbled across this guy, Marcus Eaton, the other day. Now I'll admit that his studio stuff isn't really the greatest and nothing much stands out, but you'll have have to watch some video of him playing live. He uses a lot of loops and I've even seen some video of him and Tim Reynolds playing together. Not the most amazing lyricist, but his guitar skills are worth checking out.
To fully appreciate this, you should watch the last 2-3 minutes of the song.
