It's the real-deal. I've seen them come in cherry-burst, tobacco-burst and flat-black. If you want to see some pics of the individual parts, do an eBay search for "fender jazz 24 bass". You'll see more than a few parted-out pieces in these three colors.
As far as price goes, it's a decent price. They normally went for well over the $500-$600 mark new. The one exception I saw was late last year when Alto Music's Amazon store had over a dozen of the flat-black models on sale for $500 brand new. Fortunately word got out 'round these parts and they were sold out before I succumbed to the GAS pains.

I felt a great disturbance in Las Vegas…as if thousands of Elvis impersonators cried out and then suddenly left the building.
