I seem to have seen some posts regarding this subject where AR used a look alike tone arm that was similar to the jelco .

It looks like a Sumiko/Jelco Prestige MMT arm, one of my favourites.

AR tonearms on the ES-1 and The Turntable were OEM'ed by Jelco. They were straight style arms similar, but inferior to, the current Jelco SA-250ST.

"s" shaped Jelco tonearms on an AR were most likely after market add on.

Esoteric Sound seems to stock Jelco arms in the USA. They may have parts or know who does. They sell the arms as "Rek-O-Kut" brand but they are Jelco.
