I think you're referring to "American Woman" by Guess Who. Correct?

Could you be more specific as to what you mean by the "Cello sound?" Are you referring to the lead part of that song?

Let me know. I think I can help you out if you give me a few more details.
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please contact us.

You don't need a fuzz pedal.

Your Line 6 Spider has settings to duplicate both a Vox AC30 & a Fuzz pedal effect unit. The manuals can be found here to figure out how to set up the amp.

Hope this helps! Best of success!
