Does "electronic instrument" refer to only musical instruments? Or is it posiible to use this expression to refer to "electronic devices" such as cell phone, tablet, etc.? Thanks.

I always find some cheap electronic instruments in that shop.

    No, I think it's more common to say 'electronic devices' or 'electronic gadgets' for general electronics like phones, tablets, little seemingly useful electronic devices, and similar.

    Anybody who works in the electronics sector would understand 'electronic instruments' as measuring devices/tools or gauges, e.g. multimeters, thermometers, etc., etc.

    I think it would only refer to musical instruments. Cell phones etc are more usually called 'devices'.
