I purchased this like-new cue second-hand. The previous owner said that it was from a small series of McDermott anniversary cues, maybe 8-10 total, each a little different than the other. I'm very curious as to what this stick may have sold for new. Thanks in advance for your knowlegable input.

That line of cues retailed for $2000, and were available wholesale for $1100.

I had one of these but it looked different except for the forearm inlays. A friend of mine still has it but I imagine it's been stored and not played with, just because he's more married than a player anymore, if you catch my drift. Scott hit the pricing aspect, mine was a tournament cue according to RandyG, and went for around a thousand at the time. Played well, but a bit whippy for me...sid

Scott, you were pretty much on target. Here's what the good folks at McDermott told me-
"This is an E-M1c Masterpiece cue. We originally made these back in 1994 with a special 5/16”-14 flat-faced “Masterpiece” joint. Your version has our current McD quick-release joint as this cue was finished in the 2001-2002 timeframe. We had a few “leftover” rough finished masterpiece cues that we finished off with the QR joints and sold to dealers. The original Masterpiece cues had an MSRP of $2000, but that included 2 shafts and a special super-mac 1x2 extruded aluminum tube case. You cue is the same as the original model with the exception of the joint. The amount of inlay detail in this cue is extraordinary and I would value your cue in the $1200-1500 range."

FYI- I paid $325.00 (with a case)
I had recently purchased a Player's Tournament II cue, to replace my worn out, beat up, low-end Mucci. I took a $25 loss on it and sold it for $100, which helped offset the cost on the McDermott. It worked out well.
