On top of what Def said, just refer to the old saying saying "if it were a good idea, lots a people would be doing it." I cant think of one guitar player that uses a bass cab.

Plus, bass cabs are typically designed with very high power speakers. So add the fact that because of that, those speakers will sound extremely stiff and lifeless with the fact that the speakers themselves as well as the enclosure they are in are tuned to work with a bass and the frequencies it produces and it will equal a very bad idea. Tonally speaking of course.
"So often our hands get caught up in ruts of muscle memory. 'Muscle memory' is an accurate term. We get used to doing certain things, without even being aware of them. This ultimately not only shapes and therefore limits our technique, it also shapes what we compose, what we write. We end up thinking still unknowingly trapped in that box." -Adam Nitti
