Perfect !!!

You just have to make sure it stands out in one way or another (it would look perfect on a maple guitar) possibly with a contrasting binding, or maybe a burst of a light color around it.

Needs to have a corresponding exit hole on the other side of the guitar on Wily's way out! LOL

You should put a figurine of Wile E. Coyote at the inside bottom of the upper bout, as if he fell through the top of the upper bout.

Lot's of people remember Roadrunner! Thanks for all the comments. I've done a couple sound ports in the past that tell me that I could do this. Whether I do one or not is up to you

Love it, Mark!

I'm guessing this would be called the Acme soundport option?!

I like the Roadrunner idea.

Some tuner buttons in the shape of Anvils would round it out.

Thanks everyone. Lot's of ideas. I like the theme thoughts and it would be fun incorporating subtle little clues from the show like the Acme headstock logo. This wouldn't be for everyone, the harrumph harrumph crowd, I'm sure, would choke on this one
