The Ken Achard Collection

KenAchardCover[1]We are delighted to offer the following selection of twelve guitars from the collection of Ken Achard.

Ken has had fifty years experience in the Musical Instrument business, his first role as Director and International buyer of vintage instruments for Top Gear Music in Denmark Street, London, from 1969 until 1978.

In 1973 Ken became the Managing Director of Peavey Electronics (Europe), a position he carried out until 2003.

In 2008 Ken founded Mariner Guitars where he is still the Managing Director and designer.

Ken has written and published three books: “The Fender Guitar” (Published 1977), “The History & Development of the American Guitar” (Published 1979) and “The Peavey Revolution” (Published 2005)

Other accomplishments in Ken’s glittering career include attaining an Honorary Doctorate of Science from the University of Westminster and becoming the recipient of the Musical Industries Association’s “Living Legend” award in 2010.

Amongst the collection are some extremely rare and unique Peavey guitars, the first ever Mariner Guitars prototype and a rare 1956 Gretsch 6120 G Brand guitar in exceptional condition.
