I have to say it is a beautiful cue and then some. But where is the patina? I am just saying that I would expect a violinist to hit a few balls then to put in a closet only and have it come out a seasoned "time capsule cue" having 75+ cues from that very time period I am just asking why it looks like it was just made?

would love to hear more about the history of this cue, I was unaware that George made anything this complex.

Hello yes it will come with a letter from Pete right now I'm trying to get all the information correct before I have him write the letter its a Brunswick model #36 it's one of 2 cues that were given to Balabushka in the 1960s to be cut jointed and shaft made . They are worth nice Money alone now it's on another level that Balabushka did the work ultra rare can't find any other cues that he did like this they are probably the Rareset Balabushkas around he was mainly a Titleist, samboti and Burton Spain Blank builder. This is a real special cue coming from Bushka.

A 360 by Balabushka would be a rare bird indeed. Can't wait to see the letter.

Are the shafts original or did Pete build new ones?

Yes I was a model #36 one piece cue and George converted it into a 2 piece. Very rare conversion for him can't find any other like it.
