I believe your Grace 560 is a 12" tonearm and the mounting distance is 270mm, make sure your turntable plinth is big enough to mount this arm. I suggest you post your question in Analog section, you will get more response.

That arm is too big for the Sota. It will not fit unless you ass some kind of extension to the plinth. Also it is a very heavy arm meant for cartridges with very low compliance that are also heavy like Stone Koetsu's. Most modern cartridges are lighter and more compliant. They will suffer is an arm like this especially if you have to add more weight to counter balance the arm. You really need something like a 9" Rega arm.
Itn’t the G-520 = 8", G-540 = 9" and G-560 = 12" ?
For a normal arm, the second digit of the three-digit number of the model number is a guideline for the length. For example, in terms of length, G-520L <540L <560L.
