Nominally yes.

I have found some aftermarket models where the dimensions of the studs are a little different so the tailpiece doesn't slot in. But I'd expect original Gibson parts to be all the same manufacturer.

Dimensions should be the same but the material can vary..... some are aluminum and some are not.

Heavier tailpieces are commonly made of zamac. The same stuff they make Hot Wheels toy cars out of.

Zinc-Aluminum-Magnesium And Copper alloy = ZAMAC

Just get some clear protective tape and put a layer or two on the relevant surfaces if all you want to do is try topwrapping.
