Yes, the curved-mother-of-toilet headstock is an acquired taste, and I found it ugly with protruding tuners buttons (I'm not a fan of paddles headstocks anyway, but this particular one was appalling). Banjo tuners give a slick look that I like. I did the same for the Boxcar model (spider cone)

The foam has been part of the design from the beginning. It makes a nice mute system, you can totally control the intensity of the mute, and better yet, you can have more or less on the bass or high side. Highly convenient. A little more difficult on spider poinsettia cover plates, where you have to cut the handrest and make a removable one. This is what I did for the Boxcar.
