Maker of pool cues from 1993 to 1998 in Houston, Texas and from 1998 to present in Overland, Missouri, a suburb of St. Louis.
George Buss began playing pool when he was studying engineering in college in the late 1960s. An Iowa native, George moved to Santa Barbara, California after school, where he worked for many years as a quality control engineer. In the early 1990s, engineers were being laid off in large numbers, so George planned on making custom cues, like his brother Jim. He left his job in 1992 and, after spending a year in France, moved to Houston to make cues with his brother.
Although early cues were usually marked "G.B." on the butt sleeve, or on the forearm if the butt sleeve was a dark wood, George started signing "G.Buss" on the forearm soon after. General specifications have remained basically the same. G.B. Custom cues are made entirely by hand by George Buss, without the aid of CNC. George tries to create unique designs, but he will also make more traditional designs at the customer´s request. No two cues are totally alike, and any length, taper, joint, or design can be ordered. George has created his own unique spliced floating points which are V-cut. He can inlay many of these points concentrically in different materials to create the effect of multiple veneers.
G. B. cues are becoming more and more popular in foreign markets, such as Europe and Asia. George and Jim moved into a larger shop outside of St. Louis in the summer of 1998. George works in the shop during the day while Jim comes in at night after working at Boeing. Both are there on weekends. Many repairs are done in the shop.
G.B. cues are guaranteed against construction defects that are not the result of warpage or abuse. If you have a G.B. cue that needs further identification or repair, or would like to talk to George about ordering a new cue, contact G.B. Custom Cues, listed in the Trademark Index.
