    You'll need a preamp of some sort to drive it. Actually it looks more like it was designed for guitar. Time to hit google Mario.

    How exactly can a power amp be specifically for guitar?

  6. It will work, BUT because it has smaller output transformers than dedicated bass amps, it will roll off frequencies below 80 Hz considerably. It will still have punch, but if you play five strings or like big bottom, you'll notice it missing.

    I know several guitarists who use marshall power amps dedicated for guitar. As Psycho points out, they don't handle bass frequencies real well.
