1. ...FA??? never seen that. anyway, the "00" leads me thinking it's a 2000 model.
2. "incept date": 2002. odd enough this one has got 8 numbers. or am i just not updated?

On at least the earlier RG's, the first number signifies the last number of the year the neck was produced. For example, my beater RG560 has serial #F034167. It was made in 1990, not 2003.

Likewise, one of my USA Customs has #F020850, and I KNOW it was made in 1990, not 2002. Another has #F933699, and I know it was made in 1989, not 1993. That trend holds true for the rest of my guitars as well. Most of mine are late 80's or early 90's (through 95, anyway), so I can't speak for sure about anything newer than that.
