I got this to replace the bridge on my Hofner Ignition bass. It is much better quality and made of hard ebony, and has more solid brass inserts than the original bridge. Be prepared to have to sand and shape the lower part of the bridge a little to match the compound curve of the guitar so it seats down nicely, and to file notches for the strings in the brass inserts. A little time and effort, but worth it for the improved look and sound. I got the 'teacup' volume knobs at the same time, and am very pleased with my modifications!
