Sorry for your purchase. A Scruggs sneaky was meant to be a value cue most likely cut in half and had a pin installed and tapered by Bob Frey, a nice playing cue. To the best of my knowledge Tim never built a sneaky after he brought Bob on. They sold them for a reasonable price. they Offered value, now the prices are a joke, nothing to do with Tim or Bobs actual skill. I had Bob build me a beautiful shaft years ago to match one of his butts for 150 delivered. Buying this cue as a investment is equal to buying Bitcoin. If you buy it to play w it great, but you are most likely not.
