Larrivee P-01 ISS International Space Station Commemorative Reissue
The Larrivee that went to space!
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.
