Link Wray performs Midnight Lover

I've just been watching and enjoying a compilation show of BBC archive material on "Guitar Heroes: Part IV" on BBC4 here in the UK, and my favourite clip they showed was of Link Wray performing "Midnight Lover" (see above).

Now I should know what guitar that is that he is playing, but my mind is just a blank. I want to say that it's a Greco, although I'm not 100% on that. I'm pretty certain that it's Japanese and that I saw one on eBay not too long ago.

EDIT: It's a Yamaha SG-2 (check the comments). Link Wray used to call his "Screamin' Red".
