Just thought I'd share this experience. Some time ago, I stumbled upon various threads in different forums where jazz guitar players were enjoying the tone they were getting when playing their archtops through bass amps. Being both a bass and jazz guitar player, I decided to try it. Since both my bass amps have no effects built in whatsoever, it was something I avoided.

So I plugged in my EQ700 and JZ4 into my Peavey Max 110 bass amp for starters, and was quite surprised that I could dial in "that tone" I'd been looking for. Since I like to play with a bit of reverb, I picked up an inexpensive Behringer DR100 to add to it, which did the trick for me. I later took my pedals and archtop to my drummers house where my larger bass amp resides, and did the same thing. Again, wonderful tone.

Thought this would be of interest.

I've always liked the tone of guitar through bass amps and cabs. I recently plugged a guitar into my bass rig and it was a very nice meaty sound.
