I doubt it, but call the airline and ask first

While the person on the phone may be fine with it, you might have a different worker give you a hard time. (airlines...) TSA will probably be asking a question or two. Overall I wouldn't worry about it, you will be fine.

EDIT
You might not be able to get it on a carry on. I guess it could be considered a blunt weapon.

^ I meant I doubt the airline would have an issue with it. You can bring a laptop/tablet on board so I don't thing a guitar pedal would be any different. I guess my wording could have been better.

I've brought electric equipment for my job with no problems. If you carry on I suggest you have the power supply handy as TSA may ask you to power it up.

Make sure your power supply will work in the USA, if not you'll need to by another when you get here

You’ll be fine. Just make sure it will be easy to take out of the bag during security screening.
