i don't have tape measure, nor do i have access to any sort of measuring unit besides a bill, and last night i swear it was round 20 inchs for the scale!
i measured it up against my 22.75 acoustic scale guitar and its SHORTER! it doesn't really feel like it is, but it defffinitly is!
does anyone have something similier so they can verify for me that indeed its around 20' scale wise.
i would have guessed a 24 just by the feel of the 11-52 gauge strings, but as far as string compliance goes in 440 its very "tight" feeling, i would guess that has alot to do with the insane break angle at the bridge and the string retainer behind the nut as well.

Eh, I would have figured it for a 24.75" Gibby scale myself. I'm not really certain on that, though.
