Never seen one that severe.
Not fully cured wood wen cut & strung up.
But let's face it, someone buys a Kramer b/c it has a Floyd.

Most all maple today used is kiln dried... My best guess for this one was that the back was not finished, or at least not as finished as the front of the headstock, so moisture took hold (and it can be humid in Japan) causing the headstock to bow up...
