JUDD cue questions - 06-11-2019, 11:03 AM

I ordered this cue in 1991 when Judd and Trudy were my neighbors in Southern California. I am looking to sell the cue as I haven't ever used it very much and it just remains in storage in my home pool room.

As you will see in the pictures that the original finish that is on the cue has yellowed over the years. My question is will the cue be more valuable to a buyer in original condition or will a new refinish add more value and make it easier to sell?

Thanks

Kevin

I would sell it as is then the buyer has options. For sure some people would prefer the old finish.

It's the most valuable to me, since my name is Judd, and I have this cue's ebony/ivory sister from '92. These 2 are the only 6pt cues Judd Fuller ever made (he only ever admitted to 1).

I wish I had the cash to buy it off you, but it's pretty unlikely. Someday they may be united again.

Mine has been refinished, and they refinished over the wrap, so meh... I'd keep yours as is. Whatcha gonna ask for it?

Please add pictures of your cue here or else pm me or send pictures to
kevinlindstrom@msn.com as I would love to see your cue. I was so happy that Judd made this cue to my design way back in the day.

Thanks

Just posted them in this thread. Where were they making cues in SC again? I can't remember the city.

I did have 5 Judd's refinished but if it isn't dinged up I would sell as is.
I just sold Judd's last cue before he passed.
A friend had a nice collection of Judds and his kids were
beating them up.
Those 4 Judd cues needed to be refinished, but I left all the others alone.

FYI
The Judd 8 point ebony cue on Ebay says ivory joint, but I used to own that cue and the joint is not ivory.

That makes sense. The butt cap on mine is micarta (much less likely to crack), which is why it's still a little yellow after the refinish. I don't know if Judd used ivory where it could possibly crack, like buttcaps, ferrules, and joints.

My main player right now is a JT1 with a BEM butt with ebony handle. The butt is dinged to hell by some previous owner. Someday I'll refinish it. I think that cue is from 2004.

I got 2 shafts with it, and then had Steve Klein (who's local to me) re-taper one of them (long and skinny) and put a dawg dud tip on it. Best feeling cue I've ever played with.

Judd and Trudy were my neighbors in Riverside California before I moved back to PA.

The bumper and everything about my cue is original. If I remember correctly I choose the higher or thicker bumper to be put on the cue to further protect the butt cap of the cue.

Judd used ivory for ferrules, butt caps and joints for sure .
I believe he preferred 3/8 10 for ivory joints.

I agree with everyone else.... keep it as is, and let the buyer decide to refinish or not.

Nothing plays like a Judd.

Both Judd and Trudy are/were class acts all the way.
