    "underrated" based on ... ?

    Perhaps "little known" would be a better term. Anyway, I would suggest :

    Larry ("Rhino") Reinhardt (most notably of Captain Beyond)
    Mick Hutchinson
    Roy Buchanan
    Mick Moody
    Mick Taylor
    Coco Montoya
    Walter Trout
    Tino Gonzalez
    Rob Baker
    Robbie Krieger
    Lucky Peterson
    Neil Young
    Magic Slim
    Mick Ronson
    Kenny Wayne Shepherd
