In addition to the great suggestions above, which are basically THE reference points for that style, check out John Scofield's "A Go Go " album with Medeski Martin and Wood as his backing band - it's crazy good and is really a must if you plan on soloing. It's a modern guitar funk classic.

Not quite funk guitar, but one of my favourites by John Scofield is Filibuster from the album Electric Outlet.

David Sanborn's sax solo in that is incredible.

In addition to Scofield, i'd heavily suggest you give Maceo Parker (James Brown Saxophonist) a listen if you want to learn how to solo over funk tunes. He has a ton of solo records out with great guitar players on to knick rhythmic ideas from, and he himself is a great example for playing melody and soloing.
