What would having a hole in a guitar do?

What would having a hole in a solid body electric do? Would it hurt sound or performance? When I say hole I mean like the picture I've poorly drawn and attached...it's a type of design I've been pondering...not the drawing but the addition of a hole

On a solidbody, very little. There have been several designs like this over the years. Epiphone made one called the Pierced SG that had an X-shaped hole right where you've placed yours. Like any wood removal it might change the way it resonates a bit, but that's not a 'better or worse' thing, just different.

Ibanez JEMs sometimes have monkey grips and they're highly sought after guitars. The hole's not in the same place but it's still a hole.
