New here...

Hey what a great site, glad as heck to be a member! My name is tom but most call me mez or mezzy, I play guitar and sing for a Rock-n-Roll/ Country band out of eastern South Dakota. We call our selves the Black Water Band. We have , and still do play every thurs- sat. night around a tri-state area for the last 5-6 years. I just got into CBG building and playing about 6 months ago and haven't been this stoked about anything in a while! I have been a carpenter and concrete man for the last 20 years ,and a musician for 25. I'm not much of a slide player but am becoming one , and can already pick the hell out of a three string. Most of the builds i do have a low to medium action unless someone request one for slide then i do what they want. as of now I am working on build # 17 and plan to build til i die.... If your on this site we have already got a common interest so drop a comment and add me to your friends. if ya got a my space come check me and the bands site out:
