Celebrating over 38 years in business, Lightning Joe’s is family owned and operated. We pride ourselves in giving the best customer service around and treat all of our customers as if they, too, were family. It is also equally important to us that you find the right instrument, gear and accessories so you can walk out of our shop ready to rock.

We are home to over 1,400 new, used and vintage guitars and fretted instruments serving San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties and beyond. Your excellent hosts, Lightning Joe, Marelene, Joseph, Ashley, Savanna, Christian, and Joey, look forward to helping you on your quest for tone. We are located in the Historic Village of Arroyo Grande, CA and are conveniently right off the 101 Freeway. Come on in and take a look around – it might be hard to leave without something in your hands!
