In that price range you'd be better off with a software plug-in, if you have a computer that can handle it. Not sure what hardware would have decent acoustic guitars in that price range. Somebody else can probably come up with a suggestion. I'm more of a synthesis fan than a sampler/ROMpler kinda guy.
If you're looking for sounds like acoustic guitars and other realistic acoustic instruments, the JV-2080 is about the best module available in that price range (i.e. $200 and under).
If you're willing to go up to $300 then the Kurzweil K2000 and Roland XP-30 are also really good options. The XP-30 has a HUGE collection of useful sounds (all of the sounds of the JV-2080 and a whole lot more), and the K2000 also has some of the nicest acoustic guitars and orchestral instruments that you'll find for under $1,000.
Check out the Yamaha MU50, MU80, and MU100 modules. For years these were Yamaha's flagship sound modules, back in the 90's. I recorded a lot of music with my MU80 back then - you can hear one of the Nylon Guitar patches in this song, from probably 15 - 16 years ago:
