Ebony BMC Diamond Cue Info
Info on the Ebony BMC Diamond Cue
In 2017, Bob Meucci decided to do a limited run of 50 cues of an ebony version of the BMC Diamond Cue released in 2010. These cues feature ebony wood in the buttsleeve, handle, and forearm instead of the standard birdseye maple.
In 2018, we saw ebony BMC Diamond cue #7, but this time it was numbered "7/100" via an engraved serial number on the butt cap. Previously they had been numbered by hand on the forearm near the signature in the format of "n of 50". When asked about the increase in production from 50 to 100 cues, Barb from Meucci Cues said that Bob changed his mind and decided to expand production to 100 cues instead of 50.
[Bob Meucci] changed his mind but is going to only make around 64
See the "Dates and Numbers" section below for more.
Change in Inlay Material
The inlay material used to border the diamonds in the initial few cues was mother-of-pearl. Apparently there was a tendency for the MOP to crack, and so now Meucci uses birdseye maple in the place of the mother-of-pearl on the newer ebony diamond cues they make. This generally means that an earlier cue with un-cracked mother-of-pearl inlays would be worth a bunch more as time goes on.

Ebony BMC Diamond Cue Specs
Meucci's standard black basic push-in rubber bumper
Meucci-style black synthetic butt cap
Ebony butt plate. Contains the BMC logo on one side, and for cues numbered 5 and above, the serial number is on the opposite side.
The butt sleeve isn't typical in length. It is much longer. The buttsleeve contains the same, but slightly smaller, diamond and ring pattern used in the forearm. The inlays are set in ebony wood and features several large diamond inlays and white rings with black square inlays. Birdseye maple is used on the exterior of all diamonds. The earliest cues used mother of pearl for this, but that was swapped out for birdseye maple after Meucci noticed the MOP didn't hold up well. The ovals in the middle of the diamonds are made from authentic Abalone shell. In the case of the 6 trim diamonds, the Abalone used is a very rare "Heart of Abalone".
