You will need a small screwdriver to adjust the bridge's saddle adjustment screws.
Be careful when fretting strings. You can easily change a fretted string's pitch by up to 10 cents by fretting with more or less force, and the position where you press down on the string affects pitch. For best results, use a consistent force and position. Also, during intonation you may notice that it takes a little bit longer to detect the pitch. This is normal, as Les Paul Standard 2010 Limited switches automatically to a special high‐accuracy mode.
In the Blue or Yellow Bank, choose a tuning. For general intonation, Gibson recommends using the standard tuning. However, using alternate tunings can throw off intonation. If you want perfect intonation for an alternate tuning, select that tuning prior to doing intonation.
Choose the Red Bank by initiating a series of brief, successive pushes on Enter until the Red Bank appears.
While in the Red Bank, rotate the MCK to the | position.
Push Enter for more than one second; all string LEDs change to red.
Pluck the string you want to intonate.
When tuning is complete, the corresponding LED changes color to Yellow.
Wait for about five seconds, then fret the same string at the 12th fret and pluck the string again.
The system will measure the pitch, and display the needed changes on the MCK.
Observe whether the rotating pattern goes clockwise and green or counterclockwise and red, as this indicates whether the bridge intonation screw needs to be turned clockwise or counterclockwise respectively. Also observe the green number in the Display Matrix's center, as this number shows how many half‐turns the screw should be turned.
Turn the screw as indicated, then repeat the procedure starting at step 5. If the corresponding string LED turns yellow, continue with the intonation procedure. If the corresponding string LED turns blue, the string is intonated properly.
Proceed to adjust intonation on the other strings. When all strings are intonated, the corresponding string LEDs turn blue, and the MCK exits intonation mode. If you want to exit before intonating all strings, simply rotate the MCK.
Custom Tuning (Position = C, ID = C)
The easiest way to create custom tunings is with the Gibson Chameleon Editor. However, if you do not have access to a computer, it is possible to create custom tunings within Les Paul Standard 2010 Limited itself.
