Could I get some opinions on what my Corsair Cue is worth? I do not know the real value of the cue. I have provided links to some pictures (the files were too big to upload). What I know about the cue is stated below.

Specs:
-19 oz Corsair made from a full splice John Davis blank (lacewood into
maple)
-4 veneers gold, light blue, natural, and black (inside to out)
-phenolic joint 3/8-10 and hoppe ring
-Jacoby refinished it and put on a leather wrap
-2 shafts one original and one not original
original shaft has a diameter 12.9mm and matching ring, minimal play
non-original shaft has a diameter of 12.48mm with an ivory ferrule and
plain black joint collar, med. morri tip, some play
-The cue is fairly new and in 99% condition has no dings, dents, or
chips

is the butt cap stamped with a corsair logo, and if so, does it have dashes or dots on each side? you might also take a look at corsaircustomcues.com; I understand they're pretty good about identifying and verifiying their own work.

No there is no corsair logo on it but it is listed under the exotic cues on their website. It is the last cue on that page. It has been modified since corsair finished it.

You would be doing good to get $1000 out of it. I have had several and still currently have one, it doesn't matter what the Blue Book says on these cues, they will not bring the money. On the other hand they typically play great and Roger Korsiak is a first rate guy to deal with. Best of luck!

Thanks for the info. The cue plays great, so I don't think I will be getting rid of it anytime soon. I just don't know too much about cues made from Jon Davis blanks. Thanks again.

My other two in that picture above are Alex Brick's made from Davis blanks.

I also have a couple of Scott Gracio John Davis cues.

I noticed that you changed Roger's last name in my post from Korsiak to Corsair, The correct last name for Hank and Roger both was/is Korsiak, just in case you try to look them up.

Agreed 100%.....great cues. - Corsair - is a tremendously undervalued vintage cue imho. Hank built really nice playing cues and his cored phenolic forearms were ahead of their time. Roger carries the legacy on and is a super great guy.
