Out of the ones you listed I would have to go with Alex Lifeson. But then Rush is my favourite prog group so that's a given. Jan Akkerman would be my next choice though, guy has a totally unique and instantly recognisable playing style.

I discovered Frank recently with Muffin Man and I love his kind of subversive writing, but it was definitely hard to not vote for Alex Lifeson.
