Spicy Guitar is free.

I got a knockoff Fender Strat for $40 at Guitar Center. It was cheaper than any guitar plugin. :D

Do you already own Kontakt? If so, there are many excellent guitar libraries (e.g., Orange Tree Samples, Efimov).

The best most realistic guitar patch will sound like a harpsichord if you don't play it with "guitaristic" voicing, articulation, intonation etc. And if you do have a way to play or edit it, a mundane guitar sample can be really convincing.

I didn't see these sample sets mentioned in the thread, they are excellent http://www.ilyaefimov.com/products/guitars.html

Personally I don't think anything beats simply playing guitar parts with a guitar. Too many things are just so simple to do, natural, instinctive, even accidental, which turn out to not only be really hard to voice on a keyboard, but also tend to be things that you wouldn't think to do. Just my opinion though, and even though I said that, I have a couple of songs where I double guitar parts on a Roland synth which has nice enough guitar patches and a convincing strum arpeggiator.

I think a really great strumming arpeggiator might be more interesting than a vsti or sampleset.
