Did you check the intonation? That's the very first thing you do when you buy a used guitar. Nothing's wrong with the trem system, you just have to go over everything. Even brand new guitars from the factory, sometimes the intonation is off. Check the nut (I presume you know what that is) and see if the two screws on the back of the neck are tighten (they can come loose), and depend on how hangover was the guy that put together the 7620's that morning.

Oh, last thing. After you check all those and everything is OK, and still goes out of tune. That's 7620 for you. I have 3 and only one stay in tune.

After awhile, you just have to say "whada ****".
