Yes, exactly 34"...  A little research turned up a whole web page
about the axe (aka "banjozilla"), at Johnson's Extremely Strange
Instruments - see
He says that future instruments (if anyone is interested) would be
more like string basses: 4 string, fretless, 40-42" scale, for around
$1,200.  Anyone interested?
