I think it's a 1993 60's reissue Jazz bass (MIJ)- not sure though-
it does look like this other Japanese Jazz bass. 1993 left handed. http://www.justguitars.com.au/vintag....php?guitar=46
It is, looks my Jaco Jazz which is just a 62 repro. Headstock strap button and truss adjustment at the base of the neck, should have vintage tuners too. Good price if your interested but try to talk him down to $300. I personally like modern basses better, it is pain to loosen a neck off for adjustments but to each their own.
EDIT: It is a lefty, $400 is pretty decent to catch one of these in the wild.
