View Full Version : Joss info needed!

My buddy has a Joss that I like. It looks pretty old. The number on it is 00406. I will post pictures tomorrow, but I thought I would ask tonight with that number to sew of anyone knows the model and the value. I would like to buy it from him and I don't want to beat him or him neat me.

Top cue is the one I need info on. The wrap is some sort of reptile skin or fake. Not sure.

Email Dan Janes at Joss and give him that number. He should be able to tell you when it was built. I did that with a Joss I got at a pawn shop. He gave me info about the cue and when it was built. I also ordered joint protectors. Nice folks there at Joss.

I messaged him on FB but no response.

Can't be all that old, serial numbers didn't start until about 2000. I know he had planned to keep a database.

Here is the link so you can try to look up your cue.

Thank you.
He says his records show it as a JS-03 finished 6/3/98 and sold by J&S Sales.
I guess JS-03 were different styles, as there is another JS-03 on here for sale that doesn't look like it.

That was probably about a $450-475 cue when new, plus an add-on wrap.

Used, $250, maybe 300 but 300 would be only if you were interested in the custom wrap. I think it does not add anything to the design and actually makes it look worse, but that's JMHO.
