    What does the "R" stand for or have that makes it so much more expensive?

    It think it stood for 'revised' or 'revisited'. It was a return to the traditional J-shaped SME arms of the sixties and seventies, but used a thin walled stainless steel arm tube and a much improved counterweight decoupling arrangement. There were some other minor changes, but the most important was, sadly, the retention of the nylon 'knife-edge' bearing saddle. If the latter is replaced with a bronze bearing, the 3009R and 3012R arms represent a culmination of the 3000 series development, and are now highly desirable. Since SME have decided to stop making them, stop supplying spares, stop maintaining them, and stop selling any of their tonearms - that now makes them rare.

    I’ll be surprised if it’s still for sale, I find most sellers take days to delete their listing if something is sold.

    Too many vultures on gumtree these days if anything is going cheap, anything that comes up near me where I’ve tried to contact the seller seems to be virtually sold within minutes of being listed.
