Most likely blow it unless you stick to the range of a guitar.


It wont blow, but guitar wahs can't handle the frequency range of basses, you can fix it by replacing some circuitry, but otherwise it just wont work.

You can do it, but you won't get a very good wah unless you're playing very high notes.
If you really want wah, just get a bass wah.

Why don't they just send 4chan to Iraq if they're so good at these so called "raids"?

I once got hit by a flying wig. Either it was a wig or someone was headbanging far too hard.

nah i've done it so many times, but it doesn't really sound good at all it's best to buy one thats made to sound good on bass because most guitar ones will sound like ****.

What type of music do you play? Bands?

Also, do you have a bass amp? You can't use a guitar amp.

As for the initial question, If you need something for both check out the Ibanez Weeping Demon. IIRC it has settings for both bass and guitar...plus it looks awesome.
Nope, no sig here.

Well, both a P and a J would work for that...hmm. Do you like big necks or thin ones? A P bass will have a nice chunky neck, while a J bass will have a slimmer one.

As far as tone, P basses have a nice thumpy tone to them that cuts through well, like you hear in most punk songs. Jazzes have more of a deep tone to them, and more pronounced highs.

Both of them have a rep for being able to do any style, but in different ways. A P bass has one basic tone that can be applied to just about any situation. (this isn't to say it's a one trick pony!) A Jazz, on the other hand, has a knack for changing its tone to suit.
