RE: Recognize This Tonearm?

It looks Rega, but yet, it doesn't. It'd be the RB250, but those are usually black, as is the RB300, unless it's been stripped. If not the 250, it's the bit newer RB251, again, modified. All the rest had the VTF dial a la the RB300, which includes the RB600, RB800 and I think the RB900 as you move up the line

All of them, outside of the RB700 and RB1000 were coated in black, both of those were silver in color.

Thus I wonder if it isn't a lower end Origin Live arm, based on the RB250, but the OEM variant perhaps instead and utilizes the pillar mount so predates the RB250 and perhaps with some mods as some of these were based on the basic shape/design, but with improvements to things like the wiring, bearings etc.
