Wanted to share some pics of my Kenny Murrell cue.

It's an 8pt cue, ebony forearm, large ebony points with veneers, smaller box elder burl points. Silver slotted diamond and dot inlays.
Box elder burl butt sleeve, silver rings and a slab of ivory at the bottom of a cue. (Similar to a Hoppe cue but not the same since it has a bumper and silver rings).
JP's, A&B positions have ivory inlays to give the 'rope' effect.

I am sorry I have to DQ you from calling it a Hoppe butt.

Jim <---the bumper does it in

You know how a player would say 'the cue is like an extension of my arm'? Well, it's like that.. only, for a pirate with a hook.
