Electri6ity is one of the best out there IMO... if a bit pricey, but it's one of the few that I think actually sounds half decent. But really, you'd almost always be better off just getting an actual guitarist to do parts for you, there are a lot of guitarists out there, so it shouldn't be too difficult to find someone.

I personally really dislike Electri6ity for the following reason: although you can tweak it to death, it's not really 'easy' to do so if you're not a guitar player yourself, making the setup a chore instead of intuitive.

I'd personally recommend both RealLPC and Realstrat. You will need an amplifier vst for these though.

Electric guitar is possibly the hardest to create virtually because of the quality of the distortion. As soon as you modify the pitch of a distorted a guitar it introduces a ton of crap and sounds awful, more so than a non-distorted instrument.
Your best bet is by far to hire/collaborate with a guitarist who has a decent recording set up. There was a thread where people where offering their services (me included, and I offered guitar if I thought the project was interesting enough for me).

Musiclab's Realstrat (for electric)
and Realguitar (acoustic) are the best sounding guitar plugins I've heard. You will need some kind of amp plugin for realstrat to sound really good though- NI guitarrig works really well :)

If you have Kontakt (or even Kontakt Player) then Shreddage would be your best bet. Use Amplitube with it and you are good to go.
