Fred Lincoln „Link” Wray Jr (n. 2 mai 1929, Dunn, Carolina de Nord – d. 5 noiembrie 2005, Copenhaga, Danemarca) a fost un chitarist american de muzică rock and roll, textier și ocazional cântăreț.

Wray s-a remarcat prin adoptarea unui nou sound al chitarei electrice, auzit pentru prima dată pe hitul său instrumental din 1958 "Rumble", lansat de trupa sa Link Wray and his Ray Men. De asemenea s-a dovedit a fi extrem de influent în apariția unor genuri muzicale ca punk și heavy rock. Rolling Stone l-a clasat pe locul 67 în topul celor mai buni 100 de chitariști ai tuturor timpurilor.
