Bob Meucci is famous for his pioneering of artwork on cue sticks. You could always spot a Meucci a mile away and this City of Lights Cue crafted in the 1980s is no different! Also known as the Road Agent Cue, "Meucci Original", Top Quality 80s Creation crafted by Bob Meucci **Please note: this cue is *not* the plainer looking 90s reproduction, I purchased this cue in 1987, "Pre-Dot" era shaft and the original craftsmanship clearly shows. This Meucci cue has the box letter logo, while the newer cues have the script logo.
*~Many more pictures and shop policy below!~* :)
Playable Art, Hand crafted and from the Meucci "Theme" Series, this cue is the MS-3 (one of just 7 designs in the series, the others are: ms-1, ms-2, ms-4g, ms-4s, ms-5b, ms-5e)... Meucci lovers agree, this series is the best that Bob Meucci ever crafted and highly collectible, as it is very rarely offered for sale due to the small numbers made... this is one exceptional cue and is numbered!
SIZING, CONDITION and FINE DETAILS:
It's 58" inches in length... weight is 592.5 gms = 20.9 oz, perfectly balanced --I've always thought it feels lighter due to this-- as was one of Bob Meucci's many ground-breaking trademarks "Meucci cues are built with one priority in mind - give every player more power with less effort".
Shiny Black Onyx with a Spectacular Rainbow Stained Wood Skyline and inlaid City at the sleeve (**no two are alike in the world!**), original Black Irish Linen wrap that --in another of Bob Meucci's trademark designs-- is covered in the original smooth polished lacquer finish. I like this feature a lot. I never really cared for the exposed/outer wrap on some of my other cues and much prefer the smooth, sleek look and feel of this one. That's just a personal preference, many players prefer to sand the finish off.
The Four Onyx Points and Inlays on the Birdseye Maple forearm are Highway with Cars traveling up to the far off cities at each point. Supreme shooter, both pieces are super straight together and apart. Pre-Dot era. Limited Edition NUMBERED under the bumper cap. I played this cue for 9-ball tournaments (with my old pal Phil Capelle, my pool sensei/mentor/guru and super fun friend!) and lipstick league for about a year and a half (I always broke with my custom made sneaky pete of course). Only *very* few tiny edge chips at the joint and one as shown in the pictures to the sleeve at the wrap, not distracting from the overall beauty, but I want to be clear and mention them. Brand new ferrule and leather tip just a few weeks old.
This cue is my all-time favorite and it almost hurts to give it up. I just don't play anymore and it truly needs to be shown off and enjoyed! Guaranteed to get you massive amounts of comments and compliments! :)
HIGHLY SOUGHT AFTER and EXTREMELY COLLECTIBLE... Usually Only Found in PRIVATE COLLECTIONS, rarely coming available... the only other two that I know of; one sold for $2,134.84 approximately a year and a half ago and another (lighter wrap and staining) is listed for $2,000.00... however, I know what I paid for it in the 80s, I had a great time with this stick and I'm happy to see it move to a new loving home... so make this MIDNIGHT ONYX ROAD AGENT yours here for just $1400.00 or possibly best reasonable offer after the listing has had time to run a bit. Thank you and Rack 'em! lol :D
