yeah you could but it would sound like shit and you could easily blow the guitar amp. your bass wont have much low end but you will have highs and midrange

It's alright to play on very low volumes, but Guitar Amps aren't designed to handle the low frequencies that basses dish out. Better safe than sorry; buy a bass amp.

Put it like this: if you play a bass through a guitar amp (blowing up or not) and another guitar is playing, you probably won't hear the bass at all. It's even worse than playing a clean guitar with a distorted guitar at the same time.

I was looking at a used Warwick Vampyre LTD 5'er for about $200. I went home to grab my wallet and came back and some jerk with an epic beard got it already..

I actually tried that today. It's almost painful to listen to a distorted fretless bass guitar. However, if you're not too concerned with blowing the speaker, then you can get some nice treble out of it.

i should take a sh*ty guitar combo and blow it just for the fun of it

We should really have a FAQ..

But only if you ride the tide
And balanced on the biggest wave
You race toward an early grave.
