What is your favorite guitar solo? I've heard so many guitar solo's that picking a favorite is hard. But here are some of my top ones:
 
Fade To Black - Metallica. Start's at 0:53

  

I'd Love To Change The World - Ten Years After. Start's at 2:08

Oh man that's hard... there are so many awesome solos from so many different bands.
 
My favorite would have to be RHCP - I Could Have Lied, though. Starts around 1:55. Second solo at 3:18 or so is awesome too.
 

  
 Honorable mentions:
 
Guns n Roses - Sweet Child O' Mine/November Rain
John Frusciante - Anne/Look On
Funkadelic - Maggot Brain
Metallica - Fade To Black/One
RHCP - Readymade
Black Sabbath - Planet Caravan/Iron Man

Hmmmm. That's really difficult.  
 
I have the first five Metallica albums sitting in front of me in WMP right now and I'm looking... and can't narrow it down.  Literally every song here is a contender. If I had to narrow it down to a small number I'd say Blackened, Ride the Lightning, AJFA, Creeping Death, Dyer's Eve, Master of Puppets, Hit the Lights, and Seek and Destroy. Fade to Black is good too, as mentioned.
 
Other than that, Free Bird, Sweet Child O' Mine, and Eruption (which is pretty much a solo in itself) are all up there.
