    Saw that the guitarist for the house band on American Idol was playing a Fuchs combo tonight (first time you've been able to see his amps), was it a Clean Machine combo? Nice little show to advertise on Andy...

    I believe it is a mod. Back when Andy posted here he discussed it
    Paul Jackson Jr. is a fantastic guitarist.

    Edit:
    I found the thread:

    I've been watching Idol this year and I say every week that this guitarist is one of the best I've seen. There isn't a thing he can't play and play well it seems!!!!!!

    Just caught that myself. Great, versatile tone and killer chops in all styles. That's the definition of a pro!

    Last night, it appears that Paul Jackson Jr. was running two ODS-112 combos (50’s) with his stereo pedal board.

    He also owns two 110 Celestion equipped 30-W ODS Princeton mods, which he uses for “fly gigs”, and studio gigs.

    On Lyrics he plays two 112 mini cabs with an ODS-50 head. Seems like has a nice collection of Fuchs amps (and plays them) --- I guess he likes them :p

    His tone ripped on Idol Last night! Best I've heard in a while especially on the Jesus Christ Superstar number.

    Obviously I am a fan of Paul Jr.

    Really dug his white semi-hollow PRS as well.

    Paul is cool! I love it when he gets featured on the songs.

    Especially with his acoustic playing.
