About Sean Paden

Texas transplant via Los Angeles, Sean Paden has been at the top of the touring and repair scene.  Starting at age 16 Sean has been working with the biggest names in guitar history.

Specializing in electric guitar repair with an emphasis in fretwork, Sean has been responsible for designing instruments such as Gibson’s Bucket Head Les Paul and has been a ghost builder for some of the most prolific names in the business.

Moving to Nashville in 1999, Sean has been touring with acts like Guns and Roses, Ozzy Osborne, Rage Against the Machine, Audioslave, Lincoln Park, KISS, Mick Mars and countless more.  When Sean was off the road he was a consultant with Southbound Custom Finishes handling all structural and electrical repairs and designing and consulting with custom builds.

Around 2008 Sean founded the Green Guitar Project with Chester Bennington which is an initiative to produce unbelievably great sounding and playing instruments out of recycled and discarded wood.
