1.0 STOP: Charge Les Paul Standard 2010 Limited's Battery Before Use!
Les Paul Standard 2010 Limited contains an internal, user‐replaceable, rechargeable battery that must be charged to use the Piezo pickup, Chameleon Tone Technology, or Robot Tuning Technology. Using only the magnetic pickups does not require power. Please charge the battery fully when you first receive Les Paul Standard 2010 Limited. The Quick Start guide gives battery basics, while Appendix C describes how to optimize battery performance in greater detail. To charge the battery, remove the battery plate from Les Paul Standard 2010 Limited's back, place the battery in the external charger (supplied), and plug the supplied AC adapter into the charger. The adapter is an international type that accommodates 100‐240V, 50/60Hz. The charger's LED will shine red when charging, and green when the battery is charged. An additional battery is supplied in the Les Paul Standard 2010 Limited accessory pack; if you need more batteries, they are available from stores such as Radio Shack (part #55029788).
1.1 The Master Control Knob
The Les Paul Standard 2010 Limited's four knobs are (going from neck to bridge) neck pickup volume, bridge pickup volume, Master Control Knob (MCK), and tone control.
The MCK is a sophisticated “push‐pull” knob with an illuminated interactive display called the Display Matrix. The display shows Les Paul Standard 2010 Limited's status as you select tunings, sounds, and more with the knob. It is your primary way of interacting with Les Paul Standard 2010 Limited's operating system.
Pulling the MCK up (furthest from the guitar body) activates it and applies power to Les Paul Standard 2010 Limited.
