Grandis? Help identify

Grandis? Help identify
its light. Seller says sl or slx frame. It has grandis stickers and looks to me like repaint.
horizontal cutouts on bb shell.- it has heart like shapes on lugs. Fork has no engraving only sticker. Rear dropouts are gipiemme.
components are irrelevant as seller put together bike himself. The grandis Iíve seen have engraved forks and seat area- curved brake bridge etc..

My Grandis has a fork with a G on top, Grandis script on the flute of the seat stay caps and a curved brake bridge.
Take away the graphics and this one appears pretty generic, not to point to what it is.

Whenever I see paint that pristine, I always think repaint/powder

Grandis signs...
Pantographed head tube
Panto-ed/engraved fork crown
G cutout on BB
Grandis on seat stay cap, scalloped stays
Elegant transition to dropouts and forks.

I am guessing powder coat over a nice decent larger builder frame that may or may not have been a grandis at a less grandish level. I would buy it at $150 though...looks like a nice frame and likely Aelle or Cromor level.
1987 Crest Cannondale, 1987 Basso Gap, 1992 Rossin Performance EL, 1990ish Van Tuyl, 1980s Vanni Losa Cassani thingy, 1985 Trek 670, 1982 AD SLE, 2003 Pinarello Surprise, 1990ish MBK Atlantique, 1987 Peugeot Competition, 1987 Nishiki Tri-A, 1981?
