Here are some close-ups of my newest Tucker. I love Brazilian Rosewood and Murray used an exceptional piece.

Thanks for looking,

I like your focus slightly better then Heath's (don't get mad Heath, I just give the edge to FL over MD, but it is close)

That BRW in the Tucker can not be appreciated unless you hold the cue in your hand, it is unreal.

Nice collection Chris congrats, the road is long.

Nice group shot as well.
Where are all the STs?

Jim <----Thanks for sharing the cues with us

Although we've lost a couple of cue makers in the last year or so, due to retirement and death, we still have plenty of good ones here in Maryland.
Chris has a nice Florida collection but there are a couple of others he may want to add like Nitti and Omen. I'll forgive him for excluding Arnot and Wheat.

Thanks Jim. You would more than anybody how arduous my "road" has been. But I've met a lot of good people along the way. And some not so honest people too. However, I have enjoyed cue collecting as a whole for the past 4+ years. I finally feel I have a good "base" which to continue my collecting.

As far as all of the Sugartrees go, they are all gone. I decided that except for the Searing and Showman, I want to collect cues I get directly from CM's. I know I have sold that I got direct but, my theory was I was able to get cues from those CM's and not John or Dennis. I am currently waiting on a one piece birdseye bocote cue direct from Eric. I just do not have a clue as to when I will get it. No harm, no foul as they say. I have a very nice 1x2 JB Case for it whenever it arrives.


Chris - I think Jimbo is trying to work out a night that we can some golf. I let him know I am in and I will bring all of these for you to try.


Rich - I just completed a design for an Ebony on Ebony Kenny Murrell (from Florida). Chris Nitti was suggested by Thomas Wayne on AZ as well. I truly admire his work but my dance card is pretty full for the next few years. I have orders in the works with Eric Crisp, Joey Bautista for 2012. Pete Tascarella (big cue), Kenny Koo, BHQ & Kenny Murrell for 2013. Jeff Olney for 2014 and South West in about 5 years.


I think I want to also save for my first Gus Szamboti. He is the godfather of cue making and is a "must have" for any collection. Or so I read somewhere...

I think after the Tascarella gets delivered

You seem to be building a truly first class collection. I'm jealous.
