I just bought a sunburst one, here on TB, a few weeks ago - and I love it...especially the satin-finished neck. It's got the typical p/j tone - but the only option on the stock bass is a 3-way toggle. Right now, that's fine, but down the road, I may convert it to a V/B/T setup, like my other basses.
It's got the typical well-crafted Yamaha fit and finish, and the electronics are smooth and responsive. The 424 is the least-expensive (and least-advanced) of the BB xx24 line. The 1024 is a step up (better hardware, pickups, and splined body), and then 2024 is top-of-the-line.
So happy am I with my $260 Yammy, that I decided to sand down the neck on my Fender Jazz, to try to give it the same satiny feel. Now, i even like my Jazz better. It's a great, great bass...for me.
