Info on Bob Meucci Custom Cues
BMC Cues (in the current incarnation) appeared on the scene around 2001-2002 via bobmeucci.com as well as the Meucci website.
Bob Meucci Customs are now sold by select Meucci dealers, including Budget billiards, Billiard Warehouse, Cue and Barrel, and Cypress House in TX. For some of these retailers, Bob does an exclusive line of cues e.g. BMC Angel cues for Cue and Barrel, or the exclusive line done for Cypress House, etc. Dealers tend to either be friends of Bob and his family or a top selling Meucci dealer.
Though the budgetcues.com website claims to be the exclusive retailer of BMC cues, this turns out not to be the case.
Are BMC Cues Better than Meucci Cues?
No. BMC cues are the same as the regular line of cues, except the designs are produced in limited number runs (whereas most Meucci lines are made for long periods of time with no limits on production numbers). So the designs and production quantities are different but they are made using the same factory, machines and production methods as other Meucci cues. The quality is the same all around.
BMC Cues Production Numbers Increase
We can see from looking at the literature from the Bob Meucci Customs website, the initial intention was to produce cues in limited quantities of 5 or 10 cues for each design (circa 2002). Fast forward to 2005, we can see the verbiage changing, with advertising which indicates that "most cues limited to 50 or 100". In 2017, they aren't even giving hard numbers anymore. The verbiage now says: "Only limited units of some models will be sold. The limited models are signed by Bob Meucci."
The BMC Custom Cues Ordering Process
In the earlier years e.g. roughly 2001 through 2007, you would be ordering a "customized" cue. Note I say "customized" and not "custom". This is because you pick from a standard design, then tweak certain aspects within a pre-defined range of options. The ordering process for these customized BMC Cues was straight forward. When you decide to order a Bob Meucci Custom cue, you would get on the phone with Julia Meucci-Patrick (Bob's Daughter) who runs Budget Billiards, and Bob Meucci would also usually be on these calls. In this call, you would spec out your customization, such as cue length, shaft diameter, and weight. The three of you would be on the line, jointly discussing your ideas for the cue. You would discuss your specs with Bob, and confirm the order and pay up front (with Julia). Once this was done, your cue would be produced and shipped to you within a number of weeks (depending on volume at the time).
In more recent years, there is less focus on customization. Many are produced in lots of 50 or 100 cues ahead of time and sit in dealer's inventory. Customization would typically be limited to the type and color of wrap, weight, shaft type, etc. But keep in mind - Meucci will make you just about any cue you want if you are a paying customer willing to cough up $750 to $1500.
