I'm a newb and bought this bass and it has "issues". The volume+on-off pot is toast, many of the frets are worn down, and the body has an epoxy? patch on the back. I don't see any new necks available online and I'm not sure it would be worth the cost for one or to have new frets installed on the original. I also have an SR370 that is in great condition. Should I strip parts off the EDC700 to "upgrade" the SR370? Or should I just write off the EDC700 as a lesson learned and hang it up as a reminder? What would you do?
