The Emerald Green Guild Starfire IV/ST was Le’aupepe’s weapon of choice for a myriad of hits from the 2017 record, such as ‘The Deepest Sighs’ and ‘The Heart is a Muscle’ while also serving as his main touring guitar for a whirlwind of shows since 2016.
“It has been part of me through the most significant period in my career and life,” Le’auppe said. “I hope it finds a loving home so that others in need can find a home in America after having to leave their own.” See Le’aupepe show just what that guitar can do below, playing ‘The Deepest Sighs, The Darkest Shadows’ at Lincoln Hall, Chicago.
Le’auppe is donating all proceeds to the Refugee and Immigrant Centre for Education and Legal Services (RAICES)- a Texas based nonprofit that provides free and lowcost legal services to underserved immigrant children, families, and refugees.
