Signed and Numbered 2005 BMC 1i Pool Cue

A 2005 BMC 1i pool cue signed by bob meucci and numbered with "#3". Owned by Ben Sykes and shared to the Meucci Cues Buy Sell Trade Facebook group on 2017-09-29. From the seller: Meucci BMC 1i signed and is #3 out of very few made. This was the very first cue offered in the BMC series. These were made before the BMC logo so they are marked Meucci and Signed by Bob Meucci. I can’t find another one.

Meucci 1i Cue Signed Robert J Meucci

A 2005 BMC 1i cue signed by Bob Meucci on the forearm. Not sure if it has a date or number. The owner also referred to it as a model "L4" cue. Not sure where that came from (perhaps he means "level 4", in reference to the old Blue Book of Cues method of classifying cues by their complexity. From the owner: Playing with a Bob Meucci again. This one is an "L4" signed under the urethane by Bob himself. I miss my Arnot. I do prefer a phenolic joint. This one has 18 mother of pearl inlays in the base and 12 on the forearm below the joint. It also has four inlaid points with 3 wood types: sandlewood, redwood, and tulip wood.

2005 BMC 1i Pool Cue Info

Info on the 2005 BMC 1i Pool Cue from Jagr Fan (AZB Member) Negative Review

On September 1, 2005, I purchased a Meucci Original Custom Cue model BMC-1i which was advertised on Meucci's web-site. I spec'd out several customizations, including cue length, shaft diameter, and weight. All of this was done via a direct phone call with Bob Meucci and his daughter, jointly discussing, and ultimately confirming, the order.

When the cue arrived (3 weeks later than promised), there were a number quality issues, including an incorrect overall length of the cue (+ 3/16"), a noticeable imperfection (a depression in the wood) on one shaft, the diameter taper dimensions were NOT as Bob Meucci personally quoted, and last, but not least, the promoted BMC Custom 1i pool cue which was to be signed, dated, and numbered by Bob Meucci himself was, in fact, NOT signed, dated, or numbered...!!! This element alone speaks volumes about the lack of attention to detail, not to mention the fact that it nullifies the commercial value of a "Meucci Original".

Now, after discussing these concerns by phone directly with Bob Meucci, and confirming said conversation with an eMail, I agreed to "try" the cue, but with the open option to return the cue for a refund of the original price minus a 15% re-stocking fee. Ultimately, the cue was returned and delivery confirmation received via UPS on October 13th.

However, upon inquiring by phone about my refund on October 27th (two full weeks after it had been returned/received at Meucci), Bob Meucci's story now is that he won't refund any of my money until he "sells the customized cue", a condition that he absolutely NEVER brought into any prior communications. As of this writing (November 5th), Meucci not only has the returned cue, but he's still holding my money.

P.S. In the meantime, I'd highly recommend that you look elsewhere if you're in the market for a custom cue with redeeming quality of workmanship and lasting commercial value (particularly if you prefer NOT to deal with irresponsible, unreliable service and integrity issues from the manufacturer).
