I would like to have two identical tones with one have a slight delay to make it sound like multiple guitars.  Is there a way to set an overall delay on one chain?  Thanks!

Try setting up the two Tones to be identical, both with the delay FX at the end (to provide the 'overall' delay). In one Tone, set the Delay Duration, Feedback and Mix level as desired for tonal quality. In the other Tone, use the same Delay FX, but set its duration to be longer, and set its Mix Level at 100%. Control the number of repeats using the Duration setting, as usual.

 

Disclaimer: I've never actually done this, but I think it might come close to achieving what you want.

I've done this. Use a digital delay on just one of the tones, and as silverhead said, set the mix to 100%. Set the delay time to something very short, 24ms seemed to be the sweet spot to me. Pan each of the tones hard to the left and right, I found adding just a touch of reverb to the non-delayed side improves the effect.
