Basically what's the best everything, best tones, settings, amp, guitars, strings etc?

First, what is the best ___ for strict classical meaning songs from the greats like Beethoven and Mozart completely unchanged but translated to electric guitar?

Clean amp settings I'd assume. Fenders the best for that right as far as amps go?

Next, what are some good effects that can alter the sound to make it sound better with something that only an electric guitar can do?

classical music on guitar?

as far as I'm concerned its really up to you

you can do anything from: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=2207819079067773455 to http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=66804093725257778 to http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-654350577874242734&q=yngwie ( , though not actually classical he just makes it sound that way ) to http://youtube.com/watch?v=aTD2mwwlPqc& to http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-8725540685439152718&q=paganini to http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=4877710728748067045& (which would probably most accepted by other classical musicians...even though they look down upon guitarists )

A harmonizer might be right up your alley. Try the boss HR-2 (I think that's the model), or one of the old digitech rackmount units. If you do a search on jemsite you might come up with some good results.

If you don't know, a harmonizer copies what you play, but at any interval higher or lower that you set it to.

A slight chorus might sound nice.

Like sejer said, its all in how you interpret them. If you want to shred them up--ala Malmsteen--I would use an Ibanez RG->a harmonizor->Some high gain monster. If you want to play them peacefully, I would use some kind of hollowbody->a solid state amp such as the Roland Jazz Chorus. If you want to play multiple parts, I would tap on an extended-range bass (though not a guitar, they are easier to do this sort of tapping on). You can do it a million ways, and it will still sound relativly the same, and good. That's what made those composers the best.
