    Maplin sell a guitar preamp that should allow you to do just this (code VY35Q). I'm not sure what form this kit would come in, or whether you have to use a soldering iron, so suggest you contact them. www.maplin.co.uk

    You'll need to be very careful with input levels from your guitar, otherwise you'll be getting an expensive repair bill, especially from any powered pedals that may boost the signal.

    I did it for a laugh with my bass (and a very old knackered HiFi) and just connected it to the mic inputs on an old tape deck. But it really didn't work very well, your best bet is to be an amp specifically for the job, even a cheap second hand practice amp will be better than using your Hifi (it's not really upto the job).
