Maker of pool cues from 1988 to present in Lexington, Kentucky.
James Brumfield, an auto mechanic with a woodworking hobby, loved to play pool. He became friends with Leonard Bludworth while attending the pro tournaments in his home town of Lexington, Kentucky. This inspired him to combine his hobbies and start making pool cues.
James completed his first cue in 1988. He prefers making simple cues, with playability stressed as the most important factor. He turns the shafts on J.B. cues over a dozen times during the course of a year. Although Irish linen is available, he prefers to make cues with wood handles. Most J.B. cues have had identification marks, the first cues having "J.B. Cue" engraved on the forearms. In 1993, James started putting a 3/8 in. brass disc with the "J.B. Cue" logo on the butt caps. Other than that, the basic design has stayed primarily the same. In 1996, he switched from a lacquer finish to a much more durable synthetic finish. Today, James makes about a dozen cues a year by hand in his one-man shop part-time, while continuing to work as an auto mechanic full-time.
J.B. cues are guaranteed indefinitely against construction defects that are not the result of warpage or abuse. If you have a J.B. cue that needs further identification or repair, or would like to talk to James about ordering a new J.B. cue, contact J.B. Custom Cues, listed in the Trademark Index.
