What is that odd black guitar played by the pillows' Sawao Yamanaka?

And the black guitar in this video? Is it the same of the previous video?

This was my first guess but on closer inspection not it. They have better taste than this anyway:

I don't thing they are Hagstrom, although the body shape and color are similar; besides, it seems that in the first video the guitar has two standard size single coil and in the second three. TOM bridge.

It's made by LTD (ESP) so it'll be some sort of viper...

Yep it's an ESP, but it's an Ultratone. Japan only model, though some apparently made their way to the UK. The first one looks to have been customized as I can't find one with Strat pickups.

Thank you very much guys! So another ESP guitar. Manabe and Yamanaka played several ESP models in the pillows' first years: for example, the azure strat played by Manabe in the two videos is an ESP (Yamanaka plays an ESP Tele Thinline in other videos).
