I'm thinkin' about wiring a Mooer Pitch Box inside my Les Paul. What i don't know, is what would cost a hole under the pickguard place to the tone. And what's the best way to do it. To make it work.

Literally just have a whole big enough to fit it, then wire it right before the jack. Drill some holes in your pickguard for the knobs. A full size pedal probably won't fit in most guitars though, maybe one of them lovepedal mini things.

How are you going to power it? IIRC, Mooer pedals can't use a 9 volt.

that is too funny if that is a real Les Paul. you're gonna mutilate a couple thousand dollar guitar to put a ~50 buck box in there?

if i wanted a pedal in my guitar i'd probably get a body from warmoth to do it with. this would allow me to consider how i would fit it in the guitar and they could at the very least give you the battery route you'd need. some of their guitars have pretty big control cavity cuts too, so you may be able to put a pedal in there.

if you are asking if this would effect tone, i doubt you or most other guitarist would be able to tell but i am willing to bet most guitarists will talk of all types of tone loss (that they wouldn't be able to identify in a double blind anyway).

buy the pedal. pull it out the box, figure how you want to it to bypass/engage it, unwire the jacks and wire it into the signal path of the guitar and test it. once it works then measure the components and make a route big enough to fit it all in there and hook it up.

i think this is probably a bigger project than you anticipate.

Here's an idea. Put it in a pedal enclosure.

If you're looking to be able to do pitchshift while playing guitar. Why not buy a Digitech whammy or expression pedal?

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

This isn't a great idea. Frankly, it's dumb.

I doubt this is a Gibson. If it is, get some help.

What I'd like to know is, "in what way is this better than having it in a pedal? Aren't your hands busy enough?"

It's an Epiphone. I was not seeing as a mutilation, but this guitar will always be mine, anyway. I was already thinking of putting a pickguard in the shape of a Rickenbacker, for aesthetic reasons. After seeing some demonstrations of dynamics (from whom?) Matt Ballamy, considered doing something like that, in that space i can create under that pickguard. As an experiment...

...About using a Whammy with my feet ... No way. I'm paraplegic. That's the "crazy" reason why i can't use a Digitech-ass Whammy.

Oh, ok. That's a good explanation why a pedal is not a good option.

ah right, yeah that's absolutely fair enough. Sorry if I came across curt

As souperman08 correctly pointed out, the mooers can only use power supplies (not batteries), which'll make it awkward. I imagine if you have someone who knows enough to fit it inside your guitar that they'll also know enough to jimmy a battery clip into the circuit somehow, but it is worth bearing in mind.
