I'm surprised, well I'm actually very surprised that they built a wrapless ebony on ebony blank.... Stunning cue.
I ordered this ebony into rosewood from a blank that was ready at Pete's Going to be a simple hoppe player, just 4 diamonds in the points like Jamie's cue above.
Should have it first part of next year-

I am at lost what I want to build in terms of colors and rings.

Nothing to elaborate but don't know what veneer colors to choose and where to place a ring(s). Two at the bottom or one at the bottom or one at the top of the wrap.

One MOP diamond at each point. Alternating diamond-dot-diamond combo on the bottom.

This thread has 22 pages of examples and you can go off the usual build script if none of these do it for you. His standard ring choices are the .30 thick silver rings or the stitch rings which always look nice imo when they use a color from one of the veneers for the little stitch. A bushka ring always looks badass imo just forward of the wrap, Are u going with 4 ebony points? Flame veneers have been done so much but they do also look badass on Pete's ebony cues.

You can customize it however you want, maybe splurge on some upgraded rings like these???

I prefer wrapless fullsplice hoppe's. Not many builders do their own fullsplice these days, but Pete still does. Full splice take longer, at least, when i spoke them last a number of years ago. Back than the difference was 1year for a full splice, verses 6m for a 4 pointer.

I still remeber Pete asking why i wanted a full splice, and i said they just feel better to me. He said "me too".

He gave me a quote and timeframe. 12-18 months. I offered to buy a guy’s Tasc on Reddit but he declined but told me he got his in 3 months.

My pending quote is for an all ebony 4 pointer with one ring. Leather wrap but I forget what it was. I grabbed a picture and said I want the exact one. Really unique.

I’m thinking of changing It to a more traditional ebony into Birdseye maple if it’s a little quicker. With linen wrap.

I want points that have the gradient look. Where it looks like it starts to change colors as it reaches the point. Like a flame but different color flame.

Nice. I dont believe the timeframe would change if you changed the woods. 12-18months is a pretty standard response, depending on schedule and the time he likes let things settle. I feel he may over estimate timelines with new people, and than finish early making everyone happy. Just a feeling i have, so dont take it as gospel.

I think they overshoot the timeframe on purpose. I know its just a conversion but I sent him an old hoppe professional for conversion 30 days ago and it is being shipped back to me this week. I think he originally said 6-8 months but I will have it in my hands in less than 5 weeks ha

Was it a one piece cue cutoff or a two piece cue? If two piece what kind of dimensions? Thx, Shooter08

2 piece. I am getting it back at 58". Didn't confirm the other final dimensions with him since he was finished. I will add pics of the finished later today or tomorrow

What Shooter said. I too am curious what dimensions Pete can work with for a 2 piece conversion.
When I spoke to Pete Sr yesterday he said 2 piece conversions are not ideal and they typically want to see the cue in person. This is due to the pin not being actually centered and having to pull it and plug it for a new pin. I do know he said the forearm from the linen channel to the ring needs to be at least 12 3/8 inches and I believe he said the collar at that point at least .860 or .870 ideally. He was extremely considerate with his time and told me to send in my cue and they would take a look to let me know if they would consider it as a good candidate. Shooter08.

I got the cue shipped direct to him after buying it so I didn’t get to take any measurements myself. He said he didn’t have the measurements to give me unfortunately but here was his response which is basically what you are saying as well

“At least 8” was added to the handle. For an ideal conversion: from the point the maple of the forearm dis appears between the veneers you need 13” going towards the joint, at that point ideally you have .0860 in diameter. From that point of 0.860 back toward the butt cap you need 29”. Of course reasonably straight and the fatter the better.”

Is that the actual pic of the cue? Did he add 8 inches to the back end I assume. Also what kind of linen? Thx
