I don't have an answer to the question, but it's an interesting one! I would be really impressed if you could run a solo'd guitar riff through a plugin and get a more accurate BPM than a human could estimate. If the guitar riff is extremely rhythmic, that's one thing, but guitar riffs are often NOT..
If you've got an effects processor that has tap tempo, it takes about 5 seconds to get a BPM. And for that matter, I would say it would be pretty accurate. I use my Kurzweil Rumour for that all the time. If you tap for about 10 seconds and you've got a constant number on display, I'd bet on those results!
