PIEZO PICKUP

I AM GOING TO BUY A 29 MM PIEZO PU FOR MY LICENSE PLATE GUITAR. I AM WONDERING IF I SHOULD MOUNT THE PAD UNDER THE BRIDGE ON THE BACKSIDE OF THE LICENSE PLATE OR IS THERE A BETTER PLACE TO MOUNT IT. I HAVE EASY ACCESS ALL UNDER THE LICENSE PLATE SINCE THE BOX OPENS UP STILL. ALSO THE NECK IS A THROUGH BOX NECK IF THAT MAKES ANY DIFFERENCE. I WAS GOING TO PUT A PRE AMP PU IN BUT THE BOX ISNT WIDE OR DEEP ENOUGH. ANY HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED

Man, how do you guys do this time and time again?!  It's sucking all of the joy out of the hobby for me. :)

The Irish angle

Some of you may know what a hurley is but its used in this great sport. https://g.co/kgs/gsEFqV. They are vaguely guitar shaped and so I often used one in lieu of an air guitar in my youth. So imagine my delight when I came across this lad.
