Last but not least I'd like to show everyone that John really dresses to impress while working on his cues.

I hope John doesn't mind me posting these scans of some of his cues. John sent these pics when I placed my order with him.

1) Who the hell is Johnbo .. isn't this just a design theft of Jimbo?

2) Has anyone seen BOTH Jimbo and Johnbo together? I don't wanna start a conspiracy but aren't they one and the same? Y'all look alike to me ...

3) Where's the wrapless cue photos you promised me?

P.S. Thank u for being a classy gentleman (probably goes to show that I don't know you at all)

Hi John,
Approx how many cues to date have you been able to make?
How many were Titlist conversions ?
Is it true that Rocky's shaft wood was stock that was barn aged for many years and was to become violins ?How about his pool ball ferrules have you ever used them on any of your cues?
Thank you for taking the time to answer all the questions you have received .

Thank you Jimbo for posting all those pictures, I had never seen Rocky Tillis before.
Secondly
Do you still own that shirt John? :P

i have no idea gona have to do some research

How many were Titlist conversions ?

i think 7

Is it true that Rocky's shaft wood was stock that was barn aged for many years and was to become violins ?

dont know, the only thing rocky and i didn't talk about was suppliers.

How about his pool ball ferrules have you ever used them on any of your cues?

i made a few cue ball ferrules, joint protectors....rocky also use to like to make 8 and 9 ball joint protectors. the leather work in the one photo from scott is a set of holsters he made .

Thank you for taking the time to answer all the questions you have received . thank you
