I'm a hardware person, so I will describe what is involved with hardware. I will assume it's easier (and cheaper, make no mistake) to do this with a computer.
Your guitar signal needs to turn into a MIDI command to drive the sampler.
This typically involves a hex pickup feeding frequency to note converter (Roland guitar synth, etc). There are more rudimentary engines to take a pitch and output a MIDI note, but response time gets sloppy when the little conversion engine is dealing with a full bandwidth sound (as opposed to a single string ala the hex pickup).
Now get a sampler that responds to MIDI, learn it, and map the sound you want to use to the note range you're playing on guitar, align the MIDI channels between the data send and sample receive and have fun. Adjustments to playing style/etc are probably going to be required.
It's not cheap. I'm not doing shopping for you, but shooting from the hip - given the spike in prices this past year for used music gear, I would expect to have to cough up about a thousand bucks to put something like this together from scratch.
There's probably a collection of free or cheap programs you can load into a computer that would only require you wrapping your mind around what it will take to get them all to play well together. But again, this is not my department and I have no advice beyond my plausibly misguided notion that such a thing "should" exist. They will still benefit from a hex pickup, which isolates each string into its own output.
