I bought a Linn LP12 with a Rega tonearm but I don't know how to determine if Rega 250, 300, 350 etc. How do I determine which Rega model I have?

What does it look like?
Why would anyone fit a Rega tonearm on a LP12?
they have quite different mounting profiles.
It's not that easy to do and they were not designed to take them.
got any photos?

Here are a couple pics of the arm in place. There's a QUp device installed to the left rear of the tone arm.

Excellent deck. Looks like it could do with a good service and set-up.

There is a great FB page for LP12 enthusiasts who are very knowledgable and will offer advice (on how to empty your wallet quickly) ;)

Emptying your pockets quickly was the whole reason for the design of this turntable I feel.... :)

To be fair you can buy a fully serviced LP12 from the likes of Cymbiosis for around £1500 upwards. It would be a fantastic sounding deck too. It is very tempting to replace my Axis with one but I'd really need more LPs to justify it.

That's interesting but must a very old / unmodified deck and there are plenty of other options for that sort of money.
