I recently came into possession of a bass guitar. It doesn't look like anything fancy however i would like to know if it's a branded guitar or no name one. The quality of it isn't that high, but i like it. It's just for messing around on. I payed £30 ($60) for it. All help appreciated.

I really don't know, perhaps one someone built for the Hell of it? I hate it when basses that need identifying don't have some sort of logo, it's all very discombobulating.

I quite agree.

I'm guessing it's of no particular brand, it may be something someone has thrown together from spare parts or it could be a cheap no-brand bass.

The body resembles a Hamer i saw once i think, but it was probably built for the hell of if, like dinkydaisy said.

even the cheap no brand basses have names on them though. This could be:

A: a bass made out of spare parts or from scratch
B: a bass with a neck that might have been made by the owner, hence the lack of a logo
companies like Warmoth do sell body and neck blanks so that a possibility

Thanks for the feedback guys. Further investigation would lead me to believe that it's either:
a) a cheap no name bass. (the more likely of the two)
b) the neck broke somehow and was replaced/custom neck

I don't think it's a custom build. Opening the control box revealed that the neck pup isn't actually wired up at all. I don't think someone would have put a neck pickup in, only to disconnect it.
