I want to help

Scotty Anderson

I was born in Whitley City, Kentucky and moved to Northern Kentucky when I was 19. I've been playing the guitar as far back as I can remember. I worked for Yamaha, along with a dear friend and talented guitar player, Chuck Thompson from 1984 to 1990. I've played many Namm shows and arts/music festivals around the country. I've also traveled to Paris to play for the Chet Atkins Appreciation Society. I teach guitar in Cincinnati and do clinics for music stores and companies in the area. I also play regularly with the Scotty Anderson band. At this time, I endorse Kustom Amps and am involved several projects with Little Blue Productions.
