The aluminum tailpieces weigh 1/4 that of the zinc and produce a much different sound. They transfer vibrations differently, resulting in a woodier, more airy vintage tone - richer, rounder mids but with more upper harmonics as well. Back in the '50s, Gibson® used aluminum for their stop bar tailpieces. For whatever reason, they switched to zinc, which is still used today on all but the historic line.

If you're after that "vintage" tone this will help you on your way, combine it with other parts and you can't lose. Really well made and looks great as well. The only downfall with this is like most other vintage spec tailpieces there is a little gap between the tailpiece and studs and it tends to lean down.
Gotoh is my way to go for most of the hardware on my guitars. This tailpiece is just what it says it is. Nicely packed and protected, easy to install and it looks sturdy.
inserts are nice and long and the tail piece is well made.
