6/4 - ???

I was wondering how you can tell the difference between the 7620 and 7420? *I saw, what I think, is a 7620 in a local guitar shop, but I want to make sure it's a 7620 not a 7420 before I get all excited. *It's been there for a few years, so I know the 7620 is a possibility. *I can't remember how much it was (damn, damn, damn). *Thanx in advance!

Well as you know, they both have the Lo-Pro Edge tremolo so telling them apart is a little trickier. Now, first off what color is it? (I'm guessing black if it's a few years old) If it's black then it could be either. If it is, then the next thing you want to look at are the pickups. The 7620 obviously comes with the DiMarzio "customs" and the 7420 comes with V7-7 and V8-7 pickups. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but on the S series guitar V7 and V8 are printed on the pickups. This might be true on the 7420 so if you see that then right away you know that it's that model. If the pickups are all black with ceramic poles (they have an edge around them, all black with a hole in the centre) then they're the DiMarzios and subsequently the 7620

Good luck! The 7620 is a great guitar, and it'll be especially nice to have now that they're discontinued

The poles can only be adjusted on one half of each pup in the 7420. Your able to adjust both sides on the 7620.
And the Lo-Pro - TRS difference too:biggrin:

blasphemy, sorry that's what I originally thought but an obvious misprint in my Guitar World 2000 buyers guide lead me to change it. That would account more for the obvious price difference

Thanx! *I'll double check it, since I'm going down to the guitar shop again tomorrow. *I'm pretty sure it was a Lo-Pro, but I'll double check. *Anyone have pics of the Lo-Pro and TRS that they could put beside each other in a post as a comparison. *If I saw the difference here I could tell you which it was right off the bat. *Actually, it had the black poles in the pickups, so IT MUST BE THE 7620!!!! *They also had a 76/7421 that I'll check out too. *(Although my preference is the 7620 :biggrin

also look at the strap buttons, the 762x's have a bigger strap button than the 742x's

Interesting point, I noticed that the strap buttons on my 7620 were enormous, almost to the point where it didn't fit my strap! But now they're completely secure (I don't know if I could get em off if I wanted to!)
BTW I have the on-strap D'Addario system

easiest way for me is to look at the routing of the pickups. If its a triangle (around where its drilled into the body) then its a 620 if its a U then your looking at a 420. O and the fact that the pole pices in the 620 pickups are all hollow, as oppose to the 420 that has only one row of hollow poll pices.

i would think thats the easiest way to tell. if you cant already tell the difference between the lo=pro and the TRS. but the pickups for all 7's come with black pole pieces so that aint gonnna help. just simply see if it has 2 rows of adjustble poles. just hope its not used or something and has aftermarket pickups which might get confusing

I went back and checked it out and it's the 7620 for sure! *And it's not moded in any way. *It's been hanging on the same hook for three years! *It was brand new when I first saw it (3 years ago) and still is! *It's NICE!!! *I WANT IT! I WANT IT! I WANT IT!
