One Question Interviews: All Eyes West

Jeff Dean (All Eyes West – guitar)

SPB: What type of guitar do you play and how did you choose it?

Dean: In All Eyes West I play a 62 Fender Jazzmaster, but with everything else I play a Gibson Les Paul. My 68 Goldtop is probably the best guitar I’ve ever played. I don’t think there is a better sound than a good les Paul.

With AEW, the Jazzmaster was just the right guitar for the band. You can’t get those My Bloody Valentine/Swervedriver-style bends without that tremolo that guitar has. J Mascis plays Jazzmasters, and Dinosaur Jr is my all time favorite band, so I guess I was always going to end up playing one at some point.
