Bass pedals for guitar?

i see a billion and 1 threads asking about running a bass through a guitar pedal but not ONE asking about running a guitar through a bass pedal. good or bad idea? i know it wont explode but will it sound good? i was looking at a prescription electronics depth charge bass fuzz pedal just as a serious low end boost for my rg1527 but since the only vids of this pedal are with a bass, i cant really do much research. any other bass pedals that will work for a bit of a better price? because the only reason im asking about the depth charge is because the name sounds like it would have beyond massive low end. so im open to more ideas

thanks guys!!!

I guess the "will it sound good" will depend on what sound you are after, and if it sounds good to your ears, then it sounds good.

Re: Bass pedals for guitar?

well, as much as tone is subjective, there is a point where tone is just bad and shrill. like a 15 watt fender practice amp boosted by an mxr m116 fullbore metal with the treble and mid all the way up on the amp and the pedal. obviously it wont be THAT bad but you never know. i dont want to spend $220 on this pedal only to hate it

I used a bass compressor once and I think of buying one again.
I liked it very much.
