Sounds like a good deal to me, assuming it plays nice.

Not much to go on. Any Neck/headstock pics? Serial #? The Knobs are not Fender Japan.

I see CIJ P-basses going in the $450.00 range.
Need better pictures, I would offer him $475.00.

I would buy that bass. First, they will never make any more of them. Second, its a custom or rare color. Third, it will be as good as a US made one.

Yup, if it played good and I liked it, i would pay the man 550 for it.

Just buy the thing and be done with it. Don't be hung up over $50 because if it's a fantastic bass, that $50 won't mean anything a few years down the road if you still have it.

You think later on even with it beat up I could resell it for what I paid for? I know nothing of the used instrument market.

They typically go for $450 to $550 used. I'd offer $450 to account for the paint gouging. You'll have no problem recovering that if you decide to sell.

I'll try to talk down to $450 if not I'll just pass on it.

That's not mojo that's road rash. I'd pass for $550.00 bucks.
