BOTTEECCHIA with columbus GARA

just got a BOTTEECCHIA GARA tre tubi, NOS, look like early 90's
my question is how bad/good is it ?
is there a way to know the model or year based on the S/N ?

GARA was a non-butted tubing. Check the Columbus tubing chart on Classic Rendezvous
the tubeset was a little lighter than Aelle, but a pound heavier than SL/SLX tubesets.
