The bridge on a 2050 appears to be very similar to a Schaller 3D4, which Schaller still makes. Not sure about the knobs...

BTW what kind of bridge is on the bass now?

A 2020 or 2050 bass would have the Schaller bridge and the stock Rickenbacker metal knobs.

Here is a stock 2020. http://www.3dentourage.com/425/2020.htm it is like yours except no binding.

Some of the later 2000 series basses came with the 4004 bridge.
