Help me identify this GT AL frame

It's arriving tomorrow. Was listed for about 30 dollar so as it has original stem, bar and apparently transmission, the model pretty much doesn't matter but i would like to know it lol. Owner says it's aluminium made and it seems legit. I thaught it could be a Zaskar LE because of the frame welds and because of being reinforced when the tube joins the horizontal tube. But, as Zaskars didn't make it to Uruguay, i think it could be more like an Arrowhead.

Could it be a Backwoods? Looks similar to this one I had a few years ago.

Beautiful Backwoods, but look at the joint in the front between both tubes, the reinforcement is placed on different tubes

Zasker has a flat plate on the back top tube, pretty sure about that.

That's the marker I've been using and haven't seen an exception.

Your smaller frame size could have meant a different reinforcing pattern to achieve the same end.

This one is the other pic in marketplace. I could not go for the bike as i broke my wrist riding my Palomar like a psycho on a downhill irregular terrain, so, i'll have more time to figure out this bike model and year.
