That's true, because both my guitar and bass guitar use 1/4" jacks, but my main concern was whether the speaker itself on the guitar amp would vibrate itself apart because of the low frequencies of the bass guitar. I've seen vids on youtube of guitar amplifier speakers that destroy themselves when they are played through with a bass guitar.
