Maker of pool cues from 1988 to present in Lemon Grove, California.
Tony Gugino is a full-time cue maker from Lemon Grove, California who grew up in Buffalo, New York. He made his first cue at the age of 17 on his father´s wood lathe. Tony was also a gun stock carver and bar owner. He always loved billiards and the thought of cue making.
In 1988 Tony taught himself how to use all the machinery involved in cue making. He learned about inlay techniques, types of wood, and materials used in cue making. He then made his second cue and began to perfect his ability to build cues from scratch. Due to coaxing and support from his wife, Kathleen, inquiries and compliments from friends and fellow pool players, Tony decided to go full time into custom cue making and repairs.
Gugino´s cues are diverse and unique. They can range anywhere from a sneaky-pete to a multi-point intricate inlay and special effects type artistic cue. Tony listens to what his customers want and then builds something that is a work of art, but also a good-playing cue. His cues are recognizable by the Gugino signature on the forearm and are also signed and dated underneath the wrap. His business comes mostly from word of mouth and referrals from customers. All work is performed by Tony himself. Depending on the type of cue ordered, the time frame is usually from one to three months.
