This diode does nothing to the signal, it is only reverse power flow protection so you can use anyone.

Yes, it'll work perfectly!

An option something better is to use an schottky diode, anyone. There is a little voltage drop (aprox. 0,6v) when 1N4148 is used in this way, it does not affect your tone when the battery is fully charged.

Another good Idea is to use it in parallel as it is used in pedals.
