The one on the right just was interesting to me. I’ve never seen one with a veneer on the points.

I love that the ringwork is a highway, very cool

Here is a 1991 ebony nose Tibbitts I picked up before the hoppe. I liked it so much that I bought the hoppe a week later - it is a toss-up as to which feels better.

That's a ripoff. I'll sell mine for $1,000 off if we haven't gotten along in this forum or $2,000 off his price if I like you. I guess Adam used different colors in the butt.

It's an AH-2 and I bought it new in 1986. Hits a TON! :mrgreen: (it really is a super solid hitting cue)

For instance, would love to see this cue, but just get a photobucket box. Funny, it loads tons of advertising pop-up windows just fine.

One of Danny's early cues. Much different that all of the others I've seen from him; loooonnnng points, etc.

Very nice.

Love those old Joss maple cues. Ryan T made a great example for me a few years ago.

Nice.

I was going to sell it, but just get trade offers. Realized yesterday that I'd regret trading it or selling it, love the plain maple cues from that era. And had been looking for a good one for a long time.

Going to send it off to have a new shaft made later this week.

Thanks for posting the Gus pics. Busy but beautiful - few cuemakers could get away with packing that much in a butt. <=== whoops

This was one of four Danny made for a special order - same design, different woods (I am told - I have only seen this one and a tulipwood). There are some odd design things about it that Danny didn't normally do: no points, very thin handle, light but way forward balanced, big pin, signature rather than lettering. I bought it thinking I would not be able to hit with it, as the specs were nothing like what I was used to, but it plays great.

After much thought about which cues to keep and sell, I will keep this one and sell the hoppe one.
