Can anyone help me identify this cue. It can be seen in the pics listed below. The linen on the butt is lacquered over. The person I bought it from said it was probably made in the 80's but I don't know. There are no identifying numbers or anything on the cue except for the Meucci logo on the butt.I have been told that it is one of the European series but can't find a pic of this color with this wrap. Would like to know if it is a E-1, E-2, E-5 or what. Any suggestions greatly appreciated and if there is anywhere I can look for more pis or info let me know.

I am not 100% sure but i don't recall them using that signature in the 80's. I think they started using it in the early 90's. I have a meucci from the mid 80's and the name is different. they always used to cover their wraps like that. My cue is a 2 pointes with white points with 2 veneers. nothing special. but has the same type of covered wrap. send a picture to Bob Meucci (www.meuccicues.com)and ask him for any info. he should be willing to date it for you..I looked at their web site and that cue looks similiar, not exactly, to their 97-3 cue in their gallery of pictures.......mike

i believe it was 1985 or 1986 they started using the new design name.. from Meucci Originals to just Meucci.. it also marked what was the hand made cues to now what is more mass produced on machines... i am sure most users here will agree that the Originals were probably the best cues meucci ever made...

BTW.. that cue is from the European Series of cues.. they were basically a plain cue with a solid color.. sold for around 200 bux way back when..

chris <hr /></blockquote>The Meucci Originals logo changed to the "Fancy" Meucci cursive logo in early 91 or 92. It was probably done in an effort to distract you from how crappy the build qauilty was becoming. haha.

I have one of Meuccis better cues...and believe me, the craftmanship is of fleemarket quality nowdays.
