When (or perhaps IF) they finally bring out the guitars we won't need sample libraries taking up all this disk space whilst generally not being nearly as flexible either.

I won't hold my breath. Nearly 6 years now and no sign. It might just pop up but they've taken waaaaaaaay too long and now all this shit is going down in the world. Again I won't hold my breath and I have a few reasons why. They should of released it instead of the drums. It's not like we already have a shit tonne of drum libraries that actually sound realistic unlike the bloody guitars.
Did they ever say or suggest that they were planning to make a guitar or is it just us assuming/hoping that a guitar is the next logical step after the bass?

Not a VST in and of itself then?
A Kontakt instrument can still be VST; they aren't mutually exclusive. But I see the difference you're distinguishing between needing or not needing Kontakt (the latter being my pref as well).
I owned a few of them. They're good, but I didn't feel they were good enough to keep.
We'll agree to disagree there...

Yes. It was in the list of product registrations on a trademark registration website in Italy. There was MODO BASS, MODO DRUM and MODO GUITAR. There were 3 distinct products.

My guess is they are working on it but it's going to be the last of those 3 products. I knew it would be the last one because guitars are more complex than basses or drums and likely need more time to fine tune them. Basses are relatively straightforward.

Well, that's what I hope because I cannot use sample libs since physical modelling has come onto the scene. I prefer the inherent flexibility of models.

Would be extremely disappointed if they let me down after all this time. Again I'm allergic to sampled guitars and for good reason. It's been so many years now so maybe they will do the guitars. But at this point I am not going to count on them any more because I've held my breath for nearly 6 years and I'm growing weary.

I have been looking at Musiclabs REALLPC and Amplesounds Metal Eclipse, Guitar SC, and Guitar VC. I would really appreciate some help in choosing and any other possibilities to consider. Thank you in advance for all your help and input... :) :) :)
I regularly use the Shreddage 3 line of guitars. I make a lot of heavier music, so my frequent choices are the Hydra and the Jupiter. I recently started finding uses for the Serpent, Rogue, and even the Legacy. They all have their own distinct sounds and properties.
