Does anyone know who I should talk to, or how to go about getting/building a custom pool table light fixture of Duff Beer? I've been scouring the internet, and can't find the existence of these signs(amazing since The Simpsons will put their name on anything).

Preferably something in this shape, but with Duff Beer logos.

Thank God we sold our pool table!!

Okay, I had a collection of commercial beer themed table lights (still have a couple or three).

These signs are well made and most can be disassembled.

I would take one of them and remove a side panel and take it to a sign company and have them create the "Duff" design on a duplicate sized panel so it could be re-mounted into the sign frame and you have what looks like a custom themed table light relatively inexpensively.

I don't think they would worry about your copyright infringement so long as it doesnt' turn out so cool that you decide to sell them.

If he's in N. Florida he's welcome to make an offer and drive over and get one. LOL - He can drive away with a Fish Tales pin game if he wants one and willing to pay the price!

Commercial beer pool table lights are easy to find for a patient and creative shopper - c.list, ebay, pawn shops and flea markets are all good places to look. I found all of our lights in pawn shops for between $25 and $50 - same source for the higher end sticks I bought and have hung on to including a Meucci, a Joss, a very old and nice two shaft McDermott and a "sneaky Pete" by Huebler and never paid more than $75 for any of them (none of them caused me to always hit the balls straight!).

Making the point re pawn shops - some can be great places to shop - probably even better now with the bad economy causing people to give up their stuff.

Reason I suggest commercial grade light is they are well made and usually designed to be disassembled and repaired.
Good Luck on the light!
