    Looks different.

    I would hope that the neck has a heel access trussrod though, with a few sharp undercut angles the strength of the headstock would be paramount.
    My concern is sharp undercuts equal a potential failure point if the headstock copped a whack, a la Gibson headstock snappage....

    There is always a workaround for glitches, mistakes and other Guitar building gremlins.....

    Tripped over this the other night whilst looking for something else. Looks similar but not as nice as another forum members reverse step down design.
