I have a question about the early Andy Gilbert cues. This was after the "G" symbol. I wanted to know was there cues that he made that he did not sign? If so is there any way to confirm them? And what years. Thanks

My friend has one from before he used the G, it's unsigned. I thought he started signing them after he stopped using the G.

I believe you are correct.
Not sure about the years though.

You can try posting pictures here for a possible ID or you could contact Andy directly.

Send me pics and will try to help.....cueaddicts@hotmail.com

Fyi, Andy's first cues had the upper case regular G logo (may 95-june 96), then a cursive G logo after that in 96 (very few of these), then signed, between the points usually, ("Gilbert plus the year" thereafter.

Also unsigned....it's always possible it's a conversion cue

I have 2 titlist conversions by Andy not signed. I took photos of the cues and then sent photos to Andy. He returned a short note to me along with my photos about who he made each cue for and the year he completed the conversion.
He wanted me to send photos via mail instead of sending them by email due to limited space on his computer.

Here's one for you. Who actually signs the cues, Andy or Vicky? :smile:

You may be looking at this cue.

There's nothing here that identifies that this is a Gilbert.

I know that cue and it's certainly a Gilbert...iirc, it's signed right over the veneers, which is how he will usually do it with a dark on dark cue.
