Video review of my Draco  
Nice little video review of my B.C. Rich Draco guitar. You guys finally get to hear what it sounds like. Chris plays. Behind the cut.

I know absolutely nothing about guitars and I am in awe of anyone who can play like Chris does!
I thought Chris made a good point in mentioning how light the guitar is. Carrying a weedeater around on a shoulder strap makes my shoulders begin hurting in 10-15 minutes so I can well imagine that lightness is important.
Chris also mentioned that his arm is supported by the curve on the guitar's side. That's a good design detail that some wouldn't think to mention.

It is a bummer to have to have such a big case for your guitar but it does look like it's well protected inside it.
I take it that the interior compartments are for storing all the little odds and ends you need for the guitar.
Nice review.

My biggest bass weight 10 lbs. So I'm glad that my guitar is super light. It's no where near that weight. For me it definitely is a consideration and one reason I prefer my five string because it's only 8 lbs. Two pounds may not seem like much and it's still heavy but the difference is very noticable.

I think that was a lucky addition because they were going for that unique design, but yes it does make a comfy arm rest. A nice plus.

Yeah that's the only thing I was disapointed. I should show how my other case that's the same is smaller. It's because though it's a small guitar it's very wide at the bottom.
Yes the compartments are for cables, tuners, books etc.

Perhaps you and Chris could do a how-to video on how to change out an old string with a new one and then do whatever it takes to make it sound right(?) Now I'm wondering if there's a way to tell when strings are getting ready to go bad before they break. Seems like there's a lot to know about a guitar and taking care of it.
Have you ever heard of a "diddly-bo"?

No need. There are already tons of videos on that. Strings to have to break to need changing.

That's some cool playing from Chris! I like the case too, it looks nice with the padded interior and shines in the light as well.

Yeah, it's amazing how well he can play.
Me too. I like the red and black and that it has the BC Rich logo inside the red parts.

Wow!!! Chris! Excellent! You play with such ease and comfort. You should be playing professionally, in my opinion.

You made a great video, Des!

Thanks. I've been wanting to make this one for awhile now. My watchers pestered me enough about it that I finally did it hehe.

Aaargh! Lj ate my reply! Well, to recap, I loved Chris's playing. He's really good. I agree with Earthmother. He should be performing. I liked all the techniques. I'm guessing I saw some pull-offs there?

Thanks for posting. I loved it!

Wow, thanks everybody! You saw pull-offs and hammer-ons as well as trills near the end of my playing of Des' Draco. I was using finger tapping too.

Thanks, Chris!

I forgot to say (mentioned it the first time around), that the curve in the guitar must be very handy for getting at the strings.
