Hi everyone, I play bass and have been thinking about experimenting with a guitar. Would it be okay to use a guitar with a bass amp? Sorry but I don't know much about guitar but any help would be appreciated.

i actually prefer the sound of guitars through bass amps, try it out and see if you agree (technically wise, theres no problem doin it, just the other way round doesnt work)

Its going to sound horrible, suprisingly bass amps are VERY bright with little to no bass when a electric guitar is plugged in.

I'm not sure about guitar on a bass amp, But I have an extra 1/4-inch Aux input on my guitar amp and my bass works just fine using it on that amp, sure it's not as loud as it could be but it works.

I have heard from somewhere that using a bass through a guitar amp and vice versa can be bad for the electronics in the guitar/bass, but I am not sure if that is true.

I want to know from someone who has done it for a long time.

I love the tone of my strat through a Peavey Microbass xD
The tone is just SO clean.

Thanks everyone. You've all been very helpful and now I look forward to making sweet musical love with my Dean Vendetta and my Rocktron Rampage 100.

I played through a Fender Rumble 100 for a long time because it was doing double duty. It sounds fine with pedals, though the cleans are un-inspiring at best. The best thing would be some sort of Ampeg SVT head or a tweed Fender Bassman.
