So I gave John a call two weeks before the show and asked him if he could throw something together for me and this is what he came up with; an elegant four point four veneer cue with elephant ear wrap

Thanks for sharing the pics. As I've stated before, I'm cue stupid so my verbiage might not be what it should so I'll use pics to get my point across... I love how the diamond is "blocked in" as opposed to being just a notched diamond. It's a great little detail that I like a lot.

Timberly,

Just a guess, but it looks to me like it's just one Ivory diamond and the inner notched diamond is engraved.

Mr. Showman, PLEASE correct me if I'm wrong.

Jon

Wow! And, by that I mean, WOW!!!

That case and joint caps really finish this cue.

Scott <<== adding joint caps to the order
