Using a bass head amp as a DI?

I am nearly totally new to audio recording. Do you thing I could use a bass amp to record a guitar, by using the pre-EQ setting and the XLR exit?

An example... I joined the manual of the Peavey Max 450. Looking at the block diagram on page 9, should I understand that putting on the preEQ switch, the signal at the XLR exit will be somewhat equal to ploguing the instrument in a DI? I mean I could for example use that to record a guitar without getting a "bassy" sound?

I hope I am clear enough...

Thank you very much!
