Jim delivered this cue to me at the 2008 Super Billiards Expo. You can see before and after pictures and the magic he worked is unbelievable.

The original cue was bought off of ebay. There was a piece of twisted wrought iron, like you see in a stairway handrail newel, as the "weight" bolt in it. I guess they used whatever was at hand to build them.

If you don't have a cue made by Jim, you are missing out. His attention to detail is outstanding.

Scott

This picture of Jim delivering the cue to me was taken by our very own JohnBo.

Here is Jim White's thought on the brown wood in the cue:

" I believe the dark wood is Sucupira. A wood from South America that is also used for flooring, turnery, etc."

Here is a picture that he found and it matches the color and grain.

Every time I see the pic of Jim handing over the cue in Chumly's I can't help but think of Ross.

Jim <------Thanks to Ross VF 2009 was a break even event.

That is a very nice conversion. I will have to check out Mr. White's cues as well. I have always liked this style, and the cue looks very clean and detailed. Hard to believe that is the same cue in the last pictures as the cue in the first pictures. I like it a lot. Thank you for posting such a beautiful cue.
watchinyou(likes this cue very much)

That cue is not even my ideal setup and it played great in my hands. One day I really need to consider getting me a cue from Jim.

The veneer colors really came alive!!
I didn't think they would be "Recoverable"..(The Colors, I mean)..
And, that is a great photo of Scott and James!!!
That's a keeper for my favorite photo's Album..

About veneer color restoration..
Is it always recoverable??

Alton,
From what I've been told, the veneer colors don't always come out this bright. I had another Titlist conversion that was an excellent player, but had nowhere near the bright veneers as this one.
