G&L Featured Artist: Scott Holt

Scott Holt and his G&L ASAT Classic

Lanky, tattooed Tennessean, Scott Holt has been a bearer of the blues torch his entire career. Raised in Tennessee, Texas and Mississippi, Scott and his family lived all over the area where his favorite music was born. Starting his musical journey relatively late, Scott jumped on the fast-track by joining his friend and mentor Buddy Guy at the age of 19. Scott was a member of Guy's band during the most successful period of the blues legend’s career.

In addition to his tenure with Buddy Guy and playing on Guy's Grammy-winning album Slippin’ In, Scott has released 7 solo albums of his own. Scott has also written and recorded with Foghat on their most recent release, Under The Influence.

Scott's main instrument is an ASAT Classic he bought in 2011. When asked what he likes most about his ASAT, Scott says:

"Ever since I've had this guitar, it has become my favorite instrument to play. The guitar can addapt to any musical scenario I throw at it. I tend to use all the pickup positions just because this guitar is so tonally versatile."

In addition to his ongoing gig with Foghat, Scott has been touring, writing and recording material for his new album with his own band, Scott Holt. Scott is also colaborating with Foghat members Roger Earl, Bryan Bassett and Rodney O’Quinn, on a project called Earl & The Agitators.
