ive been playing guitar for about 8 months and i want to get a bass guitar. do you have to have a bass amp or will my guitar amp work?

(the amp is a epiphone studio acoustic 15c) but o still play my les paul with it cause im broke. get back to me.
the guitar amp is made to accommodate the high pitch frequency's that a guitar make and if you try to hook up a bass with its very low frequency's then you will destroy your speaker
so yes unfortunately you will have to get a bass amp
