Guitar Player magazine's 2010 Guitar Superstar competition is open to electric and acoustic guitar players of all styles who believe they have what it takes to earn the title of "Guitar Superstar." This is the fifth year Guitar Player has hosted this instrumental-guitar competition. Each year, ten finalists are chosen by the editors of Guitar Player to fight it out in front of a panel of celebrity judges. Past judges have included Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, George Lynch, Steve Lukather, Nuno Bettencourt, Elliot Easton, Greg Howe, Jennifer Batten, and Richie Kotzen. Past hosts of the big event include Andy Summers, Greg Kihn, and Brendan Small (creator of Metalocalypse).
