Since I'm not very interested in playing guitar, and if by chops you not only mean technique, but musicianship, tone, taste, feel, etc... I'd choose Garry Tallent, Willie Weeks and James Jamerson.

If it's just pure chops, the first people that spring to my mind are Allan Holdsworth (guitar) and Victor Wooten.

Would I want to sound like them?  No.

Effortlessly have their chops?  Yes please!

Leland Sklar gets my vote for bass.

Lowell George gets it for guitar.

Jimmy Haslip is a great choice, but I think I'll go Nathan East.

I don't know...Pat Martino maybe? I really feel like I need to work on my own chops though.
Even though I don't really play bass, probably Jaco.
