Sometimes when I play sitting next to this old bass combo at high volume, I get a weird feeling, like electricity is prickling the hairs on my arm (the arm closest to the amp).

Is this normal, or am I close to getting electrocuted?

doubt it although it could be that you are getting shocked can't rule that out since i heard a story where someone got killed by their amp
Alright. In future, if I have to use that amp, I'll stay as far away from it as possible.
If it's an old amp it probably doesn't have a grounding prong on the power plug, meaning high voltage. If I were you I'd stay far away.

Greg what did you send me??
Take it to an amp tech and get a three prong mod.
