I'd try to check with Bob Frey. But it looks like a TS to me

I had one with the same colors and veneers and ringwork. But without the barbells and mine had the TS logo. It may be a refinish and the logo was lost

Good luck with your hunt

Have been told that the butt has been replaced...

Hard to tell for sure, but:

Has the right point spacing for Scruggs.
Has the right joint rings.
As you say, buttplate could have been replaced, and if so, I suspect the bumper too.

All the best,
WW

I bought a nice 4 pointer from him in the late 70's, had no logo on it.

Looks like a Scruggs with the butt cap replaced. Bob Frey is the one I'd trust for authentication.

It's been maybe 25 years but he did a 'sneaky pete' for me with no logo

but I think that was the point at the time :) :)

Can't recall if I asked for no logo?

But definitely no logo with the same joint pictured. Excuse me same pin, not joint

I'd say there's a good chance that yours is a Scruggs. Nice looking cue for sure

Like someone else said check with Bob Frey for authenticity. He's the guy

Is that not common? I had a few Scruggs with same little pin with brass insert.

Like to have em all still, wish I had sold instead of smashed em!!

Stained BEM

Thanks. The color looked like Osage orange but the wood looked like birdseye maple.

I've only had one Osage orange cue and I'm not selling it.

It has always bugged me that the Scruggs shop was so fond of staining wood.
