Joss- 1968-1979- Post your Pictures Please!!! - 09-19-2010, 09:50 PM

I am so happy with the three 70's Joss Cues that I have owed. So far they have been my favorite cues. I'm starting this thread for all the owners to post their cues. You don't see many of the 68-79 posted. I want to start a reference of those cues with this post. Please no posts newer Joss Cues.
Thanks.
Here is my favorite of the bunch I have. 1973-75 ebony with micarta joint.

Here's the first Joss I owned. 1975-79 Diamond Series #3 Model.
5 shafts. Amazing old school feel.

Your playing cue with the micarta joint is a 68-72 Joss indicated by the logo with the italic J in Joss It was Nick Serdula's cue. I sold you the three Joss cues via Leon Sly. To help purchase Leon's new c&c machine.
The hoppe cue is a 1973
The rosewood is a 1968
These are very nice cues. Enjoy!

Hi Bob.
Oh trust me I'm enjoying it. I thought the ebony w/ the Micarta Joint was Raist Chin's cue? Edwin Reyes? What's the scoop. I think that my signature was after '72 because it's NOT the slanted J and it's too neat. The 68-72 were super sloppy.

Here is my signature. Hopefully someone can post up the older one.

Bob, thanks for the cue! I'm enjoying it every day. If you sell more let me know.
Monte

my friend who I play 3-6 days a week has been using the same Joss he bought brand new in 74 for $240?.


The butt cap isnt origonal or the shafts, but the finish is and the wrap are origonal,



he has won and lost countless $$$ over the years with that cue-he only took maybe 6 months off pool the whole time, he is giving that cue a voice soon with a new book thats gonna be released very soon. I will release more information on the book soon, we got pushed back on press time for 2-3 weeks or we would be ready now. GRRRR. I say we, but Its not me, He is just a close friend-I didnt have anything to do with writing the book. Its gonna be a dandy though. Please if you know who I'm talking about-Lets keep it private so when presss time comes he can have his moment, ok? thanks.

This is mine.

The butt has a lot of scratches.
But the cue is full-original.

Nice, that a mid 70's Model #8 Diamond Series. Sweet cue! I bet it's a player.
Thanks for posting.

Here is mine. Bill Stroud told me it is either a 69 or 70. It has 5/16x18 pin, one shaft micarta the other ivory. Weighs in at almost 22 ounces, but I love it.

I have been in an argument with myself on whether or not to get it refinished. Let me know what you think.

Brandon, don't refinish it. Looks great. Can you post pictures of the logo?

As long as the wood is sealed leave it alone, If the wood is exposed,

if You do a refinish, try to save the Old-school wrap
A sweet cue

Yours is almost like "looking in my case" !!!!

Just reverse the window/background colors - I have dark windows on a light background. My wrap is all black.

I just have 1 shaft - I purchased it used in 1989.

Been playing phone-tag with Bill about a refinish of the butt - couple of cracks in the finish.

Sorry - no pix - it's on my list of "things to do"
