Take a listen to this piece by composer/ guitarist Steve Mackey. I find it really interesting how well the instrumentation works. The work is for string quartet and electric guitar. It sounds like he's using a overdriven Strat style guitar. It's interesting how similar the guitar can sound to the violin and viola, especially in the middle to upper register.

I have to analyze this and some other Steve Mackey stuff for my graduate studies this semester. I liked it, so, I thought I'd pass it along.
