    I have a plywood, 3/4 size, and inside it says, "produced by Geo and Hinny" (it's west German) 25 years old, is that who made the bass?

    The sticker is generally a pretty good indication, especially on lower-end basses. On basses that are older and more expensive you'll find that there are criminals who will forge and steal labels and try to pass a bass off as something more than it is. Also, there are bass factories around who will produce basses for businessmen who will then put their own stickers inside. Juzek did this. If there's question, most luthiers are pretty good at identifying basses and can tell you whether you have a real article or a fake.
