Rebuilding Classic Glass (Continues)

The Original Johnson Profile 800 8' 7WT




The 1st Phase prior to shipping


Retaining only the blank and original cork, Bass-Bug with his keen eye for giving life back to a worthy rod began breaking it down.  

A Blued Garrison Style Reel Seat and a Burled Buckeye insert was picked.


And here is my "Sneak Peak" just received, with the blank stripped and cleaned, and seat temp fitted. 

Next comes Black snakes and tip-top, along with Merlot Wraps.

She's going to be a beauty.
