I wonder whether Paddock might have been influenced by the Benedetto book--all these photos remind me of Tom Crandall's first all-up build, for which that book was his guide. The recurve in particular is characteristic--Tom told me that once the guitar was put together but still in the white, he strung it up and voiced it by carving on it with a finger-plane. He was listening for a chord-melody voice, and he got it.
