Yeah.... *** is with that string job... bass players...
But yeah, I would snag that, try and offer him a little less just to see if he'll take it, don't go too low or you'll insult him.
MIM fretless are pretty solid in my experience, I haven't owned one but I have checked them out in store and they blow the Squier VM fretless out of the water, not even a comparison in fingerboard quality. I did own a VM fretless and I never recommend them unless somebody else has already done the necessary work to play them right.

What is up with that stringing! I would definitely want to try before I buy.

That would be a poplar bodied 2000 gretless j and those ones are not bad at all! (and get that double bass right now ;) )

I have one I got used for less money but it was a bit beat up and came with no case. So, I think that is a reasonable price though no harm in trying to do a little better. They are very nice basses, even when beat up! In many cases the high end Squier passive basses are so good that it is hard to justify purchasing a passive MIM for more money. But I also have the experience that none of the Squier fretless basses I have tried measure up to the MIM fretless so I think that in this case the MIM passive fretless is the one to buy. The used price just makes it even better. Oh, I would not worry about the stringing. The present owner clearly does know how to string a bass properly, I'm guessing that crossover after the string tree is just his "trademark" style. It does no harm, just makes the tuners out of order when you go to tune up, and it is easily reversed.
