You don't need to know stringTunings, since it's possible to access
'line-count from any grob which is placed on a StaffSymbol:
(let* ((staff-symbol (ly:grob-object grob 'staff-symbol))
(line-count (ly:grob-property staff-symbol 'line-count)))

If we add entries in parser-clef.scm to supported-clefs and
c0-pitch-alist (either directly or by consing the new entries within
the tablature file) for the modern tab,
("moderntab" . ("markup.moderntab" 0 0))
("markup.moderntab" . 0)
we can override the Clef 'stencil to check 'glyph before calling the
default print-function. If the string "markup.moderntab" is found,
then it's simple to return a stencil for the new tab markup.
There's one potential pitfall: it's expected that each clef type has a
variant at a smaller size which is obtained by appending "_change" to
the glyph-name. You'd probably want to disable this feature by
setting 'full-size-change = ##t.
