Is the finish on it matte or glossy?

One thing to watch out for are the grommets. On these old racquets, the grommets tend to dry out over time (unless they were kept in a humid environment, I suppose...).

Don't be surprised if the grommets disintegrate and turn to powder when you remove the strings.
If that happens, you won't find a Graphite Edge grommet strip - so the best thing to do would be to buy a grommet strip for a current racquet (18x20 would be best), and cut the strip into individual grommets.
It'll be a bit of a pain to string that way - but this is one frame which is well worth any extra effort.
