Hey does anybody know if you can use an electric guitar amplified with an acoustic amp? If so, does it sound ok?

Yeah, I'm sure it wouldn't hurt. Although, you might not get a very desirable sound.

What equipment are you packin' specifically?

@ drummer I believe it is usually used with an acoustic that has pickups... I think

@ATGNWT I have a Silvertone something or other and I'm receiving a Behringer AT108 amp in a few days... So is there anything I could do about sound, fine tune amp settings etc.

Oh, well being a Behringer, it should do just fine. German-made amps like Behringer are renowned for their acoustic amps. The difference is actually in the tubes, which emphasizes the sound of acoustic instruments. But being German-made, it shares about 78-82% commonality with American amps, especially the Marshall brand. Soooo, you should get a sound more geared toward 1960s-1970s style, such as Led Zeppelin's early stuff. Unless your more geared toward hardcore punk and metal sounds, then you should sound pretty sharp. If this is the case, then I suggest a different amp OR a POD multi-effects processor.

Honestly, I suggest getting a different amp anyways. If it has already been bought, then ask for the receipt and return it for a Line 6 or Peavy amp. But if that is not possible, then you'll do just fine with the Behringer.

I own a Les Paul Epiphone, so I screw around with amps a lot.
Yeah, it will work, but because the amp's made for acoustic, your not going to get that electric "rock" sound out of it. It'll just sound like, well, an amplified acoustic guitar.
