Readers of “Vintage Guitar” magazine honored Meridian's Hartley Peavey among the 2005 inductees for its Hall of Fame.
Peavey joins former Beatle, the late George Harrison, in being inducted this year.
Peavey received 40 percent of the total votes in the "innovators” category.
"This honor means a lot to me, personally, but also to our dedicated luthiers, builders and engineers," said founder Hartley Peavey. "We craft every piece of Peavey equipment, from guitars and basses to amplifiers and sound systems, for both quality and longevity. We're pleased that players and industry pros are recognizing Peavey products for maintaining those high standards for more than 40 years."
The magazine made the announcement in its April edition.
