P-01 REISSUE SHIPPING TO DEALERS NOW!

November 3, 2015

OCT 9, 2015   Warner Music releases Commander Chris Hadfield's album Songs From a Tin Can— the first album ever recorded in space.

It’s an out-of-this-world partnership we’re especially proud of.

When the Space Shuttle Discovery reached the International Space Station on AUG 10, 2001, few were aware it was carrying a special piece of cargo.  Along with a load of tools and supplies, the STS-105 mission was also bringing a Larrivée P-01 Parlor guitar — part of a NASA psychology program designed to help the astronauts better cope with living life in space.

A talented musician, Commander Chris Hadfield played it frequently, and used to it record a version of David Bowie’s Space Oddity - the first ever music video shot in space, seen by millions around the world.  He also used the P-01 to lay down the initial tracks for his new record, Songs From A Tin Can. Watch the premier track video for the album "FEET UP".

Larrivée is extremely proud to be a part of these first space travel folk songs.  To celebrate we’re releasing a limited reissue of the P-01 down here on earth.  The guitar comes with a signed certificate of authenticity and a copy of Songs From a Tin Can, personally signed by Commander Hadfield.

P-09 BLACK LIMBA 2016 LIMITED EDITION

October 23, 2015

More commonly known as "Korina" wood, Black Limba is a medium weight tonewood that ranges between olive and tan in color. Usually with black and white streaking. The tone is very similar to mahogany but with the presence of increased mids, an excellent choice for players leaning towards the more warmer side than bright sounding.

This custom P-09 build will consist of premium quarter sawn Black Limba back & sides paired with Limba body binding. The soundboard will resonate to the tone of Austrian Spruce (Moonwood) with matching bracing. A combination for the purists alike. To complete this limited P-09, our traditional Vine inlay will adorn the headstock.

This P-09 Black Limba edition will be limited to 15 builds at $2603 MSRP each, all numbered sequentially and signed by Jean Larrivée. Completion date is set for mid January. Contact your dealer for availability.
