Searching through the BassesByLeo forum

You mean there are other basses? :D This is where those discussions go.

No sales or advertisements, no matter how well veiled, are permitted - not even a pointer elsewhere.

Searching through the BassesByLeo forum

It really grinds my gears that so many forums seem to have a mantra of "search before you ask". Thankfully, that doesn't happen here. If someone asks a question, they deserve a proper answer. That answer may have search results, but it's still a helluva lot better than "Search first then ask". Thank you to everyone for helping to keep a human (and humane) vibe going on here.

    Edit to add...The concept of providing proper answers to questions is of particular importance when the subject matter has to do with G&L basses because that is the focus of this site. When someone has a question about a G&L bass, I think it's important for us to collectively exercise the old brain and provide an answer. However, it is not and cannot be a hard & fast rule. While answers to questions about bass-related items other than G&L are welcome, an answer might take a little longer or might also contain a little nudge about being resourceful. This might even happen with G&L stuff if there isn't a known direct answer and we have to look for and filter through related information. Just sayin'...

Having said all that, I understand that a lot of folks still like to search anyway. phpBB forums, of which BassesByLeo is one, have a search function built in, but its level of usefulness is right up there with mammary glands on a boar hog. If the search criteria is VERY simple, you MAY find what you're after. But don't count on it. Use Google instead.

When doing a Google search, you can specify the website name you want it to search. For example:

To search for Kiloton, your search entry would look like this: kiloton site:www.bassesbyleo.com/forum. This specifies what you're searching for (kiloton) and where to search (site:www.bassesbyleo.com/forum).

Looking for a wiring diagram for an L-2000? Try this: l-2000 wiring diagram site:www.bassesbyleo.com. Where the first search only looked in the forum, the second search looks in the main BassesByLeo page as well as the forum.

And just because we can: kittens site:imgur.com.

Hope this helps you find things.
