    If I can play an electric guitar through a bass amp, can i still hook up an effects pedal to it? and would it work? ( for instance if I turn the bass down and the treble up?)

    So if I can play an electric guitar through a bass amp, can I hook an effects pedal to, like a digitech? and would it work like if I turn down the bass and turn up the treble?

Not sure, i'm in the same boat tho and i'm gonna give it a shot.

I sounds unusual at first because many bass amps have a wider range of tone controls(graphic eq,etc.) and some bass cabs actually have a tweeter. Broader freq response but little natural amp distort or breakup. Need boxes.

I heard it starts to sound muddier after a while, but I think if you use a EQ pedal it sounds decent, or at most a less muddy sound.

    Electronic circuit diagram for a bass collection bass guitar Japanese 1988

    I understand your pain - was googling for similar, and came across this post, 5 years prior. My SGC Nanyo Bass Collection has just started to play silly beggars with the pots, and a bridge fault. Nowhere online seemed to have any details of the wiring, as the problem is, as you say, the fact that all of the tone and volume pots are based on a printed circuit board. If theres a nick or short on the board, its a pig to replace, and I really wouldn't like to have to wire any pots onto it. I'm currently looking at the options of ripping out the old electrics and wiring it from scratch myself. If you're still after answers, good luck!

    PS - noted that none of the previous replies are relevant to this - mostly going on about the amps or a Fender guitar??!

    When i play my bass through my amp it is really loud but when i go round my tutors for lessosns he has to turn his amp way up to get any sound at all.

    His amp probably has lower gain. They vary quite a bit. Also the size of the speaker will affect it a bunch. If his is a tiny practice amp your bass will not generate much noise.

    This bass squels if you have a bass head and cabinet. i had a 100W amp and it played fine then upgraded to a head/cab. tryed playing it with loud volume, squels. anyway to fix this?

    Turn down the treble gain and mid gain... you don't need it for a bass. Prevent the guitar from "hearing" the output of the amp directly. The guitar strings make a good microphone.

    Takamine eg523sc... the bass string (6th) is about 30% less in volume as the other strings what could i do to correct this problem?

    You should take this to a guitar shop for setup. If you have correct strings on there the other thing is to check any EQ of whatever you run this into... If the amp can't handle the real low bass, it MAY appear to be a guitar problem but in fact is an inadequate frequency response at the low end in the amp and speaker.

    ALSO some people believe it or not get deaf in the low range if they have damaged their ears when young. Procure a sound meter to VERIFY the sound intensity level... You may find the level is the same for the different strings.

    The weak spot for bass is the SPEAKER in the amp.

    Bass strings are too loud in comparison to treble strings whe played through the amp

    Adjust this using the EQ on the amp and to a lesser extent the tone controls on the guitar.

    Often people boost the bass way up causing this problem.

    Bass Guitar Keeps sound keeps cutting in and out.

    There is an inconsistency in your text. You indicate that cables were swapped and problem still existed...
    You said:... "i have tried using it on a different amp and still fine".

    If you tried it on a different amp and it was still fine then the guitar is probably OK.

    THEN your amplifier is in question as the root of your problem.

    What is the amp you have? The guitar is the CB-42, but what amp do you have?

    MANY intermittent problems with amplifiers are often with the input jack itself. These jacks are easily broken by tripping over a cable plugged into them.
