neck strength

Old Ibanez Prolines are like that, as well as many acoustics. I would plan on a headstock veneer. Ibanez does that, as do many acoustic makers. Trying to get a flat, uniform finish on the headstock with that split there will prove difficult. You'd be finishing into endgrain. Even if you get it buffed out nicely, over time you'll probably see a "tell line". But it also gives you the opportunity to go with a fancy wood or match the wood type to the top of the body.
