Building Paul's Guitar

On the 1st October 2015 Paul Rhoney announced on Instagram that he was building a Oceana Duo-Tone guitar for Paul Draper.

It's ready for paint now and I'm doing it in half red/half black as a tribute to the Les Paul he played back in the day. #Mansun #SpookyAction Rquote.png

Paul also made a post on the Mansun's Only Love Song facebook group with more information, stating that he intends for Paul's guitar to be completed by December 2015.

Roadhouse Pickups supply the Vista-Tones pickups in Chrome and Gold finish, it is entirely possible Paul has chosen Gold Pickups to emulate his old guitar.
