First of two new Classic Universal Horror themed rods for Brian Nobori......this one is a Calstar GF800ML with the Boris Karloff version of Frankenstein. Rod features Alps XXNLG guides, centra-lock reel seat, EPDM fore grip covered in smooth shrink, tuna cord rear grip with an Alps rubber gimbal. Deco stuff includes an SDPW image of Frankie bordered with long fades, a spiral CTHD between the first and second guides, and plenty of OB inlay work.

Awesome! That's one cool ass rod! You never cease to amaze me Jim. I can't wait to see his next one. What's it gonna be, Wolfman, Dracula, or the Creature from the Black Lagoon?

We actually did a rod together about this time last year with a Creature from the Black Lagoon. Believe it was a Tilefish Jr if I remember correctly. So that kinda made for future plans to do other characters down the line. This next one is going to be Bela Legosi's Dracula. Probably be posting up that one tomorrow or Tuesday depending on the finishing.
