That's known around here as a "gold letter Joss" for the gold letters on the joint collar. Made in the late '80s possibly very early '90s. This model is pretty basic but its a 4 pointer, with cnc points. The points are inlays not spliced. The cue sadly isn't worth that much, but don't worry. You have an extremely well made cue, and many of these cues play just fantastically. Looks like the original bumper has been replaced on your cue. Mike Sigel used a Joss from this era to win a ton of tournaments. Great cue.

Precisely correct on all counts I think.

Although the earler cues are more highly prized this was a sort of golden era for JOSS. Sigel and Varner went around thrashing everybody with JOSS cues. Definitely some great playing cues. That one needs to get to a table as often as possible, it would only be right.
