Default Emerald Synergy with levers?

Is anyone here familiar with someone who has added levers to their stock Emerald Synergy? I've seen Muriel Anderson's x7 harp with them, but it seemed like a particularly custom rig.

I'm about to pull the trigger on one and since I'm capoing all over the neck for my vocals I was thinking some levers might make life easier for me.

I don't think it's possible on a stock Synergy...there's simply not enough room on the head to add the lever on the highest sub-bass string (worse on the X20 than the X7 but I don't think it's possible on either), possibly even on/for the next string up. Muriel's Synergy has an obviously modified head to make room for those levers...

Another issue that I've wondered about is the thickness and/or stability of the sub-bass head. If it's hollow, of if the head is solid but not thick enough, then installing the regulator pins/nuts would be difficult to impossible.
