The ~$100 asian import electrics are about the quality level, I'm told, of CBS-era Fenders. My #2 is a Squier Bullet Tele I got for less than $200. Cheaper acoustics are more likely to be dogs, because there's much more of a balance to be made, but dollar amount is not alone an indicator of a bad guitar.

There's a 14-minute track, a disco cover of "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood", where someone shreds flamenco guitar over a disco beat for a nice chunk of it. Nylon-string guitar and techno can be a thing.

comment How can I get a violin sound from my electric guitar?
more than likely, a vibrator will fill the pickup with electromagnetic pulse, not vibrate the strings.
