Epiphone employee Scott Riley was originally hired in 2002 as a guitar inspector but it didn't take long for his superiors to recognize his talent and work ethic and eventually make him a trainer for other new inspectors joining the Epi team. From there Scott moved on to his current position with the Trade Channel Support team. With a focus on everything from Merchandising to Product Training, Scott now spends his time helping Epiphone Dealers reach their potential.

Born in Martin, Tennessee, Scott grew up in a military family which landed him in Kentucky, Kansas, New York, Illinois, Florida and Germany before returning to Tennessee. Married for just over a year, Scott enjoys camping, hiking and of course playing music.

"Epiphone, is a really great place to work...we have a great team", Scott stated. "Most of the people here kind of have the same mindset, with a musical background so it works out well and the business is just fun."

People like Scott are what make Epiphone the great guitar company that it is!
