(hennemusic) Guitar World readers have named Eddie Van Halen the Greatest Guitarist Of All Time.

Van Halen took the honors after nearly half a million total votes were cast in the magazine's first-ever Greatest Guitarist poll.

The tournament-style readers poll began in April with 132 guitarists. In the final matchup, which took place early this week, Van Halen faced off against an unlikely opponent in Queen's Brian May, pulling a hefty 62.48 percent of the votes to claim a decisive win over the upset-happy May, who beat Jeff Beck, George Harrison, Les Paul, Jimmy Page and Jimi Hendrix on his way to the finals. more on this story
