No serial number on my UV

I recently bought a UV777PBK (i think it was a '98 but i'm not sure).
One question i have is: Where is the serial number?
Am i right in saying that original square heel UVs had the serial number engraved there on the neck plate? And had nothing at all on the rear of the headstock? This being the case, all my 'All access' Jems have the serial number on the back of the headstock, but my UV still has nothing. I cannot see any evidence of it ever having one either. Obviously, this model is the only UV to have an 'all access' neck (therefore, no heel plate), so shouldn't it have one on the headstock?
Thanks for any clarification,

Strange...I've got a JEM7VWH that also has no serial number at all, and there is no sign of it having been rubbed/sanded/steel wooled off of the back of the headstock. Wonder if Ibanez slipped on a few? Doesn't seem likely, but...

that is interesting. just wondering though, for example, if you broke the original neck on say a JEM, and you send it to ibanez, do they return a new neck with the matching serial number? that was my first thought, but i might be wrong.

Every replacement neck [that was ordered after they started putting serial #'s on the head of that model] have always had serial #'s on them.
