Hello Jeremy (sounds like I'm talking to myself, doesn't it?),

I really don't have any idea if doing an exact replica of that system
is easily doable (though everything is possible to a certain extent,
if you're ready to get your hands in the code). Just note that:

* the shape of note heads can easily be altered using the `style'
  property of the NoteHead object, as shown at:

* changing the number of lines a Staff has is very easy; the
  StaffSymbol has a `line-count' property, by default set to 5. It is
  modified either using and \outputproperty:
           \outputproperty #(make-type-checker 'staff-symbol-interface)
                                               #'line-count = #7

  Or by placing a translator in the paper block:
           \translator {
                   \consists Staff_symbol_engraver
                      StaffSymbol \override #'line-count = #7

  I have absolutely no idea how to define individual thickness of the
  Staff lines, though. For more informations on the StaffSymbol object:
