Figuring out the scale on a fretless instrument

Yesterday I was at the gas station and I spotted a guy with what looked like a cigar box guitar headstock coming up out of his backpack. I walked up to him and started a conversation, and sure enough it was a homemade guitar (not a cigar box, but he used a box that was about the same size.)

[Just the headstock on this thing was so cool. He used eye screws for tuners; it was pretty badass.]
