Identify Signed Numbered Custom Cue

Identify Signed Numbered Custom Cue

I have been trying to figure out who made this cue.

I bought it new when I lived in Paso Robles, CA. and was playing leagues. It is signed and numbered and was hand made because I remember picking which woods to be used and how many "points" it would have. He put a piece of twisted rosewood inside a really cool clear resin on the butt. I was told at the time we were designing it that the wood all meets in little wedges to form a solid circle of material in the middle, not "inlay".

The cue maker lived in that area (maybe a little south of Paso Robles, CA) and was an above average non-pro 9 ball player.

The cue has held up great and looks like the day I bought it. Any help would be appreciated!

    That's an amazing cue. I love that spiral in the butt sleeve.

    What is the name in the signature? Billy ____?

    Yes, I use this cue whenever I play since it was made. It has amazing feel and a cool design. I do not know his last name. I had the actual receipt for the cue but can't find it. I was hoping someone in this community and close to billiards may know if this "Billy _" is still making cues. I was offered an extra shaft at the time but declined but would get one built now. Also just curious..:)

    I should add..Billy numbered these from #1-XXX as he built them. So this was the 10th all-time he built. I guess what I'm say is this was not a production company. It would need to be someone familiar with the local mid-state CA non-pro billiards scene. Lol....assuming that's still a "thing".

    Does "Billy Auvenshine" custom cues ring a bell?

    How much do you want for this pool cue?

    I pay via PayPal or with cash.

    Hey Mark,

    The cue is not for sale. I still dream of getting back into billiards some day when work is less demanding. I was simply trying to find the cue builder to get a few more shafts built. He literally played on my 9-ball tournament in Paso Robles.

    Just find your closest pool hall, go there and pull out this cool stick. I'll bet you make friends immediately.

    I would recommend contacting Schmelke Cues to fix you up with a new shaft. You can send the cue to their shop and they will match it to the butt. They will customize the shaft any way you want.

    I sent 3 cues to Schmelke. 2 others for restoration and 1 Schmelke cue needed a new shaft. They did a beautiful job on all 3. Restorations were perfect and the custom shaft was fantastic. I have now 3 Schmelke cues [my latest just arrived yesterday]. All 3 are top quality and I love them.

    I now have 7 more cues I will be sending to them for restoration and customizing. I have 2 Robinson cues that I want Schmelke to add color rings and a wrap to. I am trying right now to purchase 2 more Robinsons That I will add to this pile.

    I endorse Schmelke and tell you that they do great work. Period.

    Hey thanks. I appreciate you taking the time to spell that out. I will give it a try!

    And of course, let us know of there is any more info you find about the cue or the cue maker.
