This cue has got me stumped. Ringwork looks like production but butt cap and bumper looks like custom even old early 70's joss. the wrap appears to be old cortland linen. The pin inserts on shaft doesnt look typical for cheap asian production and unusual to have 2 shafts for cheap player. comes with old fellini style case.

crazy thing too if it was a production it wouldnt it be common for joint and butt ringwork to match but its slightly different below joint. Has alternating 1 dashes and 2 smaller dashes below joint. @ RSmith Yes appears to be. I was looking at that. Im going to have to get pic of ferrules from the guy selling it. Hope So.

Looks like the joint pine is backing out. Have you taken the bumper off?

Kmart cue, you'll find a square of wood hammered into the buttsleeve. The ringwork isn't different, it's a cracked maple dash. Actually cracked.

Could be a frankenstein cue lol someone took a cheap production and replaced buttcap and wrap. Hard to tell anything not having the cue in hand. heck the case might be the money. If they put old westinghouse micarta ferrules on it then im down.;) waiting on additional pics.

It is likely yellow plastic, will probably sand white again. If that is micarta, then hot damn!

i'd buy it just because i like the forearm. no clue on an id, though. if ferrules are micarta i'd definitely be all over it.

I reached out to Scott Gilmore, one of two people in the country that Richard has authorized to work on his cues. (Scott did an outstanding job on a refinish and rewrap of my Bushka that Richard made for me. I played with a couple of Scott's cues, and both played pretty similar to my Bushka. I've ordered four of his cues to have at the house for guests...and me!)

This was Scott's comment:

It could be, he did do a design like it. But the joint pin doesn’t look right. I’d have to see it to make that call.

That's what stopped me from being all-in on it being a RB, that pin. Never seen a Black with a pin like that and i've owned a few of them.
