There’s plenty of artists that play guitar that are among the richest Rock artists, but are generally not regarded as guitarists. While they’re iconic musicians in their own right, that means artists like Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, or Jon Bon Jovi won’t end up on this list. Instead, we’re looking at musicians that are primarily associated with guitar players.

Using data gathered from celebritynetworth.com, we've compiled a list of the 10 richest guitarists in the world. As an added bonus, Audacy has plenty of stations dedicated to these artists. Just hit play and start listening now!
