We recently received some news here at Clayton, Inc. that we had never heard before…we found out that one of the picks that was made here for customer Jowi Taylor was taken into space!! Jowi had conceived and commissioned a guitar, made from pieces of history from all across Canada. The guitar has been played by everyone from Don Ross to Feist to K’naan to Ron Sexsmith to Buffy Ste. Marie to Gordon Lightfoot as well as thousands of ordinary Canadians. It’s also been played by the extraordinary Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield, who took one of Jowi’s Clayton custom guitar picks on his recent celebrated mission to the International Space Station. He recently returned the pick along with the official certification of its journey, shown here:
How cool is that? This little guitar pick that we made has certainly traveled further than any of us have! Guess it’s time to rock out in outer space!
