George Lynch is an inspirational and legendary guitarist. He is a former member of Dokken.

Since Dokken, George has been in Lynch Mob and currently, Souls of We, which is being renamed due to new members.[1] George Lynch and partner Tony Ortiz create custom one-off guitars called Mr. Scary Guitars. They are very limited quantities, come with certifacates of authenticity and are individually named and numbered. George and Tony also work closely with customers to build to their exact specs as much as possible. Options include wood types, neck dimensions, pickup windings, hardware options and finishes [2]

Mark Kendall, guitarist for Great White, claims Lynch started two hand tapping before Eddie Van Halen [3]. This was back when George was in a band called The Boyz pre-dokken.

George is a monster. He's one of the best guitarists around, period. (in my opinion, THE best)
