yes.

but get the T1ZSA "Aluminum Featherweight" Locking Tailpiece instead of the t1zs.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

the old ones were aluminum that were original to the TOM bridge you are replacing. like back in the 50's and 60's old ones.

people swear they can hear the difference but i've never done a blind side by side test to say if i can.

either way, you are upgrading your bridge set up. why not use the original materials and upgraded parts? it seems like that's your goal here.
