Nice! You don't see too many S1 Exploiters. The A and D tuners are not in the proper alignment. It looks like the center screw that holds both tuners down may be missing.

The screw is there, the tuner hold down tabs are broken.

That was something Alembic did on narrow cone headstocks. The two tuners come too close together, so they clipped them and held them down with a single screw. Not the best design, but generally functional. Nothing a dab of epoxy or some such wouldn't improve upon.

Yes bsee is correct, I own a Exploiter/Spoiler that I purchased off Ebay from the original owner, its all factory original and the tuners are the same way, it has no issues cause of this.
no epoxy needed.........

bsee - that's not really a "narrow cone" headstock. Check the Spoiler on my profile, that's what I call a narrow cone.
Of course mine has the same issue with the single screw holding the A and D tuners, but it's still keeping everything in place (cross fingers).
Somehow it doesn't look like a true short scale.
