    Did they ever offer the Benji Madden in pink?

    There is on on reverb and I was thinking about getting it but not if it is not the original color any help would be cool

    He said he got it in a storage auction and he also clarified it was never green just painted?
    Three chords and two minutes is all I need.

    EBMM did not, but from Xjbebop's link it looks like they made one for him. Are you talking about the one on Reverb? Get the serial number and run it the the serial number tool. I have a feeling it's a refinish.

    The Benji's were offered in Green (Madden Green), black and white I believe.

    It's a very cool color!!!

    I'm curious if that's a refin / copy myself. However, even if it is, it's very cool!
    But if it's the real deal, then that's even cooler...

    Bill, chances are it's what it says it is. You can try emailing EBMM CS to see if they have anymore info for you. Not a bad price really and as Xjbebop said kind of cool. Sounds like your interested. Hope you snag it if you are.

    Definitely a stutter button, maybe throw a sustainer pickup in it. Different color pickguard, single coil on neck.

    Does anyone know if that humbucker is the same as in the Axis bridge?

    And $125 for shipping is a bit excessive.

    True, but it is funky. They are taking offers.

    I was laid off from my dream job because of budget cuts (along with about 25 others). Otherwise, I’d jump on this so fast.

    Does anyone know what Humbucker those came with?
