Boris Gutnikov (4 July 1931 – 1986) was a Soviet violinist, born in Leningrad.

He won the 1957 Long-Thibaud Competition and, most notably, the 1962 International Tchaikovsky Competition ex-aequo with Shmuel Ashkenasi. He had been appointed a teacher at the Leningrad Conservatory soon before.

Andrei Petrov composed in 1987 his Memoria for violin and ensemble in memoriam Gutnikov.
