Acoustic guitar drilling
Hope this is not a repeat.
I have a sound hole pickup in my acoustic and am sick of the dinky wire going to my amp/DI box. I have some 1/4" jacks with reinforcing plates, I used one to replace the non-plate jack on my bass, which was always wobbly. I was just going to drill a hole and install one of these plate jacks in the location you see it in most electric guitars, but in reading it seems most acoustic players opt for the endpin jack, and some have said the side wood in the guitar is too thin and can be damaged by a jack there.
1. I've seen acoustic guitars with side pickups which seemed to work fine
2. I've always found endpin jacks clumsy and annoying for some reason
3. I already have the regular jacks, and they have the reinforcing plate, which might help the strength (?)
4. I don't want to break my guitar in spite if the above 3 statements.
Anybody have experience or advice in this area (or a redirect if this is an inappropriate question for this subforum)
