Yeah, wow indeed. What reel is that?

A Tiburon/Shimano Magnum?

The guts and right side plate are from a Shimano TLD 20 2 speed.

The aluminum frame upgrades are available through WilFish Tackle in Auburn, CA, and there is some ordering info on Bloody Decks by the 'new' owner of the tackle shop, and is available in different colors (the reel you see has had additional customizing).  If you ship them your TLD 2 speed, they will do the conversion and ship the completed reel back to you, with your additional old parts.
The original owners of WilFish Tackle were long rangers that wanted a lighter reel than the Tiagras/Internationals.  They had a machinist develop a frame for a 2 speed Shimano TLD 50 for cow and super cow YFT, maybe 20 years ago.  Once that design was produced, they introduced frames for the 2 speed Shimano TLD 30 and TLD 20 reels.  The WilFish frames have the distinctive "GAME OVER" logo on the side plate.  You can also have the drag plates upgraded on the 20 and 30 to the 50 size.

Tiburon frames are similarly designed with "TIBURON" on the side plate and "MAGNUM" on one of the cross bars.

An all aluminum, TLD 20 2 speed with a 50 drag plate sounds like quite a reel. Must be a heck of a lot of money to get there.
