It appears that a few years later they also included the option of letting you specify which (fine) wood would be used for the butt portion. Ebony, Snakewood etc. For an extra $1.25 of course

This ad from 1928 shows the 36 with an Ebony butt and the 360 with a different lighter wood in the butt section.

At this time you also had the option of getting it wrapped if you desired. Cork, leather, linen etc

Mr. Bond,
Thank you so much for posting! That's the first time I've seen the carved handle part. I wonder is any 360's survived with Snakewood?
And, since Brunswick was offering custom wood, handles and wrap, I can only assume that they were making these "in house" and not importing the blanks as I imagine the cost to import one custom blank would not be worth the trouble. Since I'm taking that leap in logic... that would mean Rambow would have definitely had at least some hand in making these cues.
It's driving me crazy, not knowing who deserves the credit for the design. And, if they came up with this design, what else have they come up with that never seen the light of day?

Snakewood and Ebony 360 with non Titlist veneers... I can only imagine!

They were definitely made in the U.S., most likely at their giant cue factory in Muskegon, but possibly in Chicago.

However, there's two problems with the possible Rambow connection:

1.) Rambow worked at the Chicago facility and not in Muskegon. We don't know which location was producing the 36.

(However, a business partner of Rambow's named Axel F. Hort did indeed work at both locations, and he was older than Rambow. Perhaps it was his design?)

2. Brunswick hired Rambow as a mail boy in about 1896 (he was 14) but they were selling the 360 by 1898, so its pretty safe to say that Rambow didn't design it.

This thread is getting really good , I took for granted Richard Black dreamed up the design.
I had no idea it came from yesteryear , an amazing reproduction.
Thanks Jon , great thread .

Of course there were European cues as well...

Arounceville,
That is one of my favorite cues, of all time! You have a real gem! I'm really interested in hearing how that Ebony shaft plays? I wanted to ask RB to let me hit a few balls with it, but never got around to it. Congrats on getting that great cue, and making some of the best blanks around, IMO!

Jim Baxter,
Doesn't look like a Brunswick, pin and the wrap going around the pearl on the bottom, veneers is something I haven't seen in a Brunswick 360 before, but I'm not the expert on them, yet.
Maybe Mr. Bond or Tate will have more insight.
Whatever it is, it's beautiful!
