I have that Gotoh on my Fury. The stocker was a bit "clacky" (which bothered me a lot more practicing unplugged than really mattering when amped). The Gotoh is very attractive without looking nearly as modern as the Hipshot A (not sure if that's the model you're considering). I very much doubt if you would hear any difference between the two. For me, I like the appearance (on that bass) of the Gotoh better, and it cost about 1/2 as much.
They both work great, so, if I were you, I'd make the choice the same way I did: consider price and your personal preference on appearance.
