Hey! I'm looking for a VSTi or KONTAKT guitar with the best funky sound. I write funk and disco music. I found a "ST Guitar", so far this is the best and most realistic funk sound I've heard.
But maybe there are other realistic guitars for funk and disco ???

"st guitar" sounds

and walkthrough

It depends what you are looking for. Just the funk sound and will you play yourself through a midi keyboard? Or a VSTi that has some built-in riffs?
I have Orange Tree Samples Stratosphere and that has some pretty convincing funky Strat sounds on board

I'd also have a look through the Kontakt Factory Library, if you haven't. There's some funky stuff in there.

Since it's physical modeling it may not be as realistic as a sample but maybe worth a listen.

Guys he doesn't search for a guitar. He just wants to make cheap promotion for Antonov stuff.

You really can't go wrong with Orange Tree Samples (all their electric guitar libraries can do great funk riffs). The key is knowing about the types of chords and voicing used in funk music.
The scarbee funk guitarist library is great as well but it's basically a loop player. It can build a great backdrop very quickly. You can do great with the impact soundworks guitars too.
