Because Les Paul Standard 2010 Limited doesn't use digital modeling, the signal path is all analog. Furthermore, the Piezo pickup output can supplement the magnetic pickups for an acoustic type of sound.
Les Paul Standard 2010 Limited remembers the most recently‐stored Chameleon magnetic pickup coil
configuration, even with no power. This is because Les Paul Standard 2010 Limited's Chameleon Tone technology uses special latching relays that “remember” their most recent state.
Choosing Chameleon Tones
Pull the MCK out, choose a tuning Preset if desired or use the Instant Access Tuning, and tune the
guitar as described in Chapter 2. When tuning is complete, Les Paul Standard 2010 Limited will switch to the Green Bank for Chameleon Tone selection. 2. To choose a different Chameleon Tone setting, turn the MCK to the position that represents the sound you want (refer to the following chart). After the MCK stays in a position for more than 200ms, that sound will be loaded.
In this chart, “PU” refers to the recommended pickup (N = neck, B = bridge, M = middle
position, P = piezo) to obtain the specified sound. However, choosing different pickups will give other sounds that are equally useful.
To obtain these sounds, the tone controls should be fully clockwise, and the piezo pickup
should not be blended in (except for Position A).
