Anyone seen a 455 sv.


Recommended Posts

I was in Nashville in 1961 and saw a cherry red Gibson in a music shop, the proprietor in the shop said it was a 455 sv (stereo varitone) It looked like a 355 to me but had a few differences. It had gold covers and all gold hardware with a Bigsby  long tremolo tailpiece. Never seen or heard of the model before or after. It was twice what a 355 cost at the time so it was a non issue. Had to be one of the best feeling I ever held though.
