Which guitarist do you guys think has the most distinctive style? I'm gonna say Mark Knofler. He's probably the only guitarist whose style is instantly recognisable to me.

Amen Brother. To not include Eddie on that list is like putting together a list of the 10 Best Soccer Players ever and forgetting Pele.

Um Edward Van Halen, I mean as soon as you hear that first note or chord you know it's Eddie!

I'd say Les Paul, Allan Holdsworth and of course Eddy, but to be honest he as inspired some truly offle whammy bar and tapping stuff from other guitarists. I've never taken SRV seriously because he seems to be playing Hendirxs' "red house" over and over (am i wrong?). Mark Knopfler is very distinctive and unique.
