Ok, I don't know much about bass stuff but i want to find out for my friend who is interested in learning bass

Will a normal electric guitar amp work for a bass or is there certain amps made specifically for bass guitars?

it wont work 'well'. it will amplify the sound, but you can only push it to a certain extent. i wouldnt plug a bass into a half-stack or anything like that, cause youll screw up the cab. there is some major risk to the amplifier. you can play guitar through a bass amp though. it just sounds dull.

well theres the old marshall super bass. great amp for both guitar and bass, im pretty sure it was made for bass but it can definatly can be used for both, not sure though, may be a guitar amp with extra bass built in.

buy a bass/keyboard amp for bass. A guitar amp is not designed to handle the lower frequencies that the bass produces. I would have no reservation about plugging a guitar into a bass amp though.
