"Real" guitar solos are improvised, not written. As e.g. van Halen's solo in Beat It.

Yes, indeed that one is, which is why i said ”most”. Because guitar solos are generally quite like vocal melodies. You improvise over the music. Then you piece the best parts  together. Sometimes its pretty close to the improv, sometimes it takes a lot of working out.

Saying that only improvised solos are ”real” solos is a big middle finger to most, if not pretty much all (including EVH) of the biggest guitar players. And in the case of a pop production like the others mentioned. Zero chance its a one take improv.
