Default Could someone please identify this tonearm?

This tonearm is on a Kenwood KD-550 but is not the factory arm I am seeing in all other pics of the KD-550. Please help, Brien.

It's Japanese... but i don't recognize it. Have a look at and see if you can match it up (it is not a Rega/Lustre R200)

Do note that this TT came armless. We usually put Grace 707s on them.
