comment What are the objective differences between the guitar and the piano?
Also, listen to some Thelonious Monk and maybe even some Cecil Taylor. Some of their favourite voicings when translated to guitar (where possible) sound much harsher to my ears. Monk particularly loves to grab just the tritone that is the 3rd and b7th of a dominant 7th chord. Hard to do this on a guitar as often as Monk did and pull it off, imo. ... @Josh: I definitely agree it depends on one's ear/personal taste/listening experience.

comment What are the objective differences between the guitar and the piano?
I think it probably is subjective. An example that's one of my favourites is to play a minor 2nd, say E & F, which on it's own is very dissonant, but then also play a D in the octave below (or even two octaves below). The resulting chord could be thought of as a Dmin9 (or Dmin(add9) as there's no 7th) and I think it's a truly beautiful sound. That said, this voicing works pretty well on piano and guitar. I think having the ability to space a voicing over several octaves as one can with a piano gives you more leeway with dissonances. Though, as I say, this is subjective.
