I clamp an Intelli IMT-900 on the peg-head. It's not visible from the front of the guitar but works great.

If you put it on the shoulder next to the ES knobs, nobody will ever see it.

I used this tuner for years on about any finish imaginable. Not one issue. It doesn't use adhesive. It uses the same thing cling stickers use. and it works great.

Worry less about the guitars you want. Play the guitar you have more.
The answer will come, and it will not be what you expect.

A guitar is a tool, and a friend. But it is not the answer.

It is the beginning.

I put a Wittman in all of my Taylors.

This is an excellent little tuner for guitars that don't have one. Install takes about 10 minutes and is done with double sided tape for easy removal. I mount the 9V battery on the back brace adjacent to the neck joint for the stealth factor. Neither the wires or the battery are visible from out in front of the guitar. This is a great little tuner with red flat/sharp indicators and a green in tune indicator. Accurate to within +/- 1 cent and bright enough to be seen outside. To answer the question, to my ear, it makes ZERO difference in tone or volume other than you can always make sure you are in tune.

The view from out front. All you can see is the tip of the toggle switch at about the 2 oclock position in the soundhole:




Tuning up the G string


Tuning up the E string

Btw, I mostly use an A-440 tuning fork and the Kevin Ryan method of tuning.

I like the Wittman tuner. Its cheap and unobtrusive.

Unfortunately I have difficulty matching pitches by ear (i.e as in a tuning fork, piano, etc) which is why I'm terrible at tuning my guitars. Thats why I need one of those devices with lights that light up when the guitar is in tune.
