Larrivee Guitars to re-start production of the 'Space Guitar'

Canadian Astronaut Chris Hadfield returned to Earth just over a week ago from the International Space Station, where he recorded a number of songs using a Larrivée Parlor acoustic.

He was Commander of Expedition 35 of the ISS and has become one of the most popular Astronauts in recent times with his high level of participation on Social Media having over 900,000 Twitter Followers, and his love for playing Guitar in space.

According to a report by CBC News, the Larrivée guitar has become so popular that the company will resume production of the model. The report says that Larrivee Production Manager, Edwin Bond, claimed that they have already received over $100,000 in orders for the small body acoustic guitar.
