So i was asked to be in two bands and agreed to both, since i have plenty of time to spare. I will play bass in one and guitar in the other. The problem is i only have enough money for one amp. I have decided to get an acoustic b200 bass amp.

Now my Question is this: Will playing guitar through a bass amp sound bad? Will my tone be affected?

Also I know there are similar threads but im asking about tone, not whether or not it is ok to play guitar thru bass amps.

It will definetly affect your tone, your guitar wont sound like a guitar through a bass amp, it'll sound like, surprise, a bass (more or less at least).

The bass amp can handle the frequency signals a guitar is designed with, so it wont affect anything internally or cause any damage to either the guitar or the amp. However, playing a bass through a guitar amp is a different story.
Got a question about Baritone guitars? Feel free to PM me.

Thanks to UG, I converted from Metalcore to some "real" Metal.

Some of the people in this thread are talking out the bum'oley, it'll work perfectly well and sound fine. You'll need a pedal if you want any overdrive though.

I wouldn't reccomend it, you'll have such a terrible tone.

It will sound really stale, but just play through a Behringer distortion pedal on there and your set!

Wow, most people that answered on this thread clearly never played a guitar trough a bass amp, it does not sound that bad at all, you'll be fine

IMO, it sounds crap if you have any distortion. The cleans are quite nice though.

Sigh. Some people in here really don't know what they're talking about. Many legendary guitar amps were actually Bass amps. (Hint: Fender Bassman)

If I'm not mistaken I think the JTM's were originally bass amps as well.
