Made the last cut on this cue a while back and a big ugly spot showed up in one of points. Put it aside and kind of forgot about it. Doing a little rearranging and found it and thought it was too nice to waste. Put some finish on it and here it is.

That's awesome, it's just what I like!! I love ugly cues, since it's ugly can I have it for $200??
Wait if you are done with your old SP oil finished is what I love it's my SP oil finished collection, can I have it for $150 since it's used and oil finished??

I know you have a long wait list with people who want nice cues that will pay good money for, but can I please avoid that list and buy these perfectly ugly cues for pennies on the dollar, I mean that's really what I want. I just want a player and I hear you make a decent cue. I'll take a cue off your hands for $125, I mean it won't be any closet queen for me.

My whole life all I ever wanted was an MTIII cue.

Jim <---Willing to spring for $100, of course only if it has 2 shafts and is dead straight.

PS, I'll never tell anyone what I paid and of course I'll never sell it.

Jim <---Can you send me some pics shrunk down for e-bay please.

It was labeled amboyna burl but it is unlike any I have seen before. Made some fixtures for a cuemaker many years ago and he gave me a bunch of wood as a thank you and this piece was part of it.
