I am pretty sure they never left the factory that way. They were either put on by the guys who bought them or buy a few of the dealers prior to selling, but not from the factory.

Some of the RG and S variants had them as stock on the back of the headstock (as displayed in the 2008 catalogue), but not JEMs I don't think.

What you saw on my LNG was an aftermarket part - it's a Gotoh piece, in fact.
Hard to come by for some reason.
