    Depends on the year.

    1989 headstock is 9 7/8"

    1977 headstock is 107/8"

    Measured from the top of the nut to the tip of the headstock.

    1964 - 11" from tip to top of nut. I've heard that the 1st re-issues (76 -) were very much the same as the 60's versions, so a hair difference in length would be expected.
