Help...Two serial numbers on the back of RG headstock?

Hi Guys,
I have a 2001 RG3120 DR. It is different to the normal model as it has matching headstock..not sure why!?! Also, there are two serial numbers on the back of the headstock. Just wondered if anyone had any idea why this would be the case?
Any help would be appreciated!
Thanks

You need 5+ posts to be able to post pics. You can upload pic in imgur and share link which would help.

I have an RG1202 from '97-'98 I think and it also has two serial numbers. One of the first Prestige models!

Guessing here, but other guitars I've seen with 2 serial numbers like that were factory seconds.

Mines more like a third or a fourth at this point!

I've seen that on some other early 3120s. If guitar plays great and you like it, it's nothing to worry. It's legit.
