I'm trying to get a MIDI guitar sound real on a solo and was wanting to know how to do this.
I've tried using Guitarpro exporting to .wav then running it into an amp sim and it sounded terrible.
Any advice on how to do this?

Never heard a good one either. Just get better at guitar.
I've bought, sold, and traded more gear than I care to admit.

I'm not trying to use this to replace a solo...
Just curiosity.

My advice would to be just use a synth VST and pass it off as a "keyboard" solo.

Edit: Wait...I missed your last post before I posted this

spectrasonics omnisphere has some pretty good and realistic guitar sounds, its a VST plugin so you would have to use FL studio or something similar that can host vsts im sure you can find it somewhere to give it a try

the closest not real guitar - guitar I've heard was in a dream theater song. a synthesizer was playing a solo that sounded pretty similar to a guitar. of course, it didn't have that flexible string sound but the actual tone was spot-on.

Well, first off, it doesn't even sound real. Second, theres no point to it except to stand around your circle of friends and say "Oh, I'm cool and can pretend to play guitar on my ipod". Third, the kid looks like a tool.

Well, I agree a midi guitar will never sound like a real guitar. But I find it interesting the app can be used to control other instruments in Garageband and record into MIDI. There are better options like the Roland MIDI kits but $800 is a lot of money for some people.

That's actually really cool. I think I might try this out sometime!
