With well over 100,000 set ups behind him, Lightning Joe has been dubbed "The Man" by his peers... "I wish I knew this stuff when I was out gigging and touring"... His influences can be seen and felt in the improved feel and set ups of many manufacturers who have been inspired by his work, recognizing him as a master guitar technician (not to be confused with luthier) and employing some or all of his more progressive techniques and specs.
