Any Starfire owners with a tape measure?

    I have a pr of Curtis Novac's wonderful Bisonic recreations, and I'm thinking to use them on a solid body 34" bass. I'm thinking it would be interesting to voice this bass ala the classic Starfire and position the pickups as such. So I'm looking for a couple measurements, if anyone can provide them.
    I've read conflicting reports of the SF's scale. I have seen 30" 30.25" and 30.5". A confirmation of one of these numbers would help. Also I'd like to know the distance from the 12th fret to the center poles of the SF's 3 pickup locations (the single bridge pickup is positioned differently than the dual pick up, bridge pickup.) Thanks in advance

    Starfires are 30.75" scale. I no longer own one, so I can't give you the other measurements.
