    image. I was given this bass guitar today, but I have no idea what make it is, there's nothing on the head stock. I'm guessing it was maybe homemade. But If any knows what this "R" is please let me know.
    Many thanks

    A picture of the whole bass would be more helpful.

    There is a high end custom brand "R bass" - but I don't think this is one...

    My guess is the neck plate is likely just a personalized piece.

    Yes, looks like that "R" was engraved on by someone with a metal engraving tool rather than a factory stamp.

    You can remove the neck and see if there's anything written in the neck pocket or neck that might offer some clues, also you can remove the pickguard while you're at it and see what kind of wood it's made out of, but I think this might be an R-Partscaster bass.
