And what string is this?

It says "Gamma Gut" in blue and it's a natural colour.

Joe, it looks legit to me, it might be a demo. It's one of the later white butt cap models due to the font change of the "Pro Staff". Gamma Gut was Gamma's original synthetic gut. Whoever strung it used some oooooooooold string b/c I haven't seen this stuff around in years... closest thing is probably Gamma Gut 2, sold here at TW.

Looks like Craig told you everything you need to know. It's real, and the string is really, really old. No need for a second opinion on those facts.

Looks fine !

And what a low price.

Where I play, this model is very popular. Still.

And a racket in this condition costs about 70-80 USD.
