The Larrivée Guitar
March 28, 2018
On August 10, 2001 NASA Space Shuttle Discovery mission STS-105 reached the International Space Station carrying a special piece of cargo - a Larrivée P-01 Parlor Guitar. Legendary Canadian Astronaut and ISS Commander Chris Hadfield played it frequently while on board and used it to record his version of David Bowie's "Space Oddity" - the first ever music video shot in space, seen by millions around the world. An official limited edition replica of the historic instrument is now being auctioned off on ebay and has been signed by Chris Hadfield specially for the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum's auction.
Have a look at Commander Hadfield's visit to the Larrivée factory back in 2012.
"I played my first Larrivée in 1999, and knew I'd found an angelic sounding partner for concerts and songwriting."- Juni Fisher
