Advice on a Used Gold Crown III

Post by B Kadle » Fri, 11 Jan 2002 13:26:58


I have the opportunity to pick up a high tech gloss black GC III for $3,000.
The guy that owns it was a pool room owner in Bloomington, Illinois and got
it new in 1996. Everything sounds right. He is willing to let me have a
table mechanic inspect the table before paying for and moving the table.
This almost sounds too good to be true. I got pictures of the table that
confirm excellent external cosmetics.

What should I be thinking about? Would you want to buy this table? All
opinions are welcomed.

Every fingerprint, dust bunny and stray hair imagineable is going to be
noticeable on the glossy black.  Other than that, this is probably a great
deal.

   Sounds a little stiff to me, around here gold crowns go a little cheaper.
Having it moved, set up and new cloth will add another 500.00.

In addition to what Jim said,I'll assume that you haven't seen the table in
person?

We have six of the GC3 at 'The Triple' and the main problem imo is that the
glossy black surfaces now have many small light 'scratches' on the rails.They
are obvious to anyone upon close inspection and in a photograph they would be
impossible to detect.

You may want to look at the table personally and see if you're still as e***d
over the selling price/purchase.

Just a suggestion

Billy

Why dont you call Diamond Billiard to see if the are going to be
selling any tables they use at Pro Events, The Gold Crown 3 is the
least desireable of the
Gold Crown series.The diamond would be for sure a better table. I
recently ordered a Gabriels Signature Pro with 1 and 1/2 inch  Giuffra
slate, one piece steel frame and artemis cushions IMHO the best table
out there.

Best regards

Ditto on the cost question. Also, why do you say GC III is the least
desirable of all of them and what is the current thought on the GC IV?
