I received a 2019 Chrome Boy today and it has two different Serial Numbers. The headstock and accompanying paperwork show one serial number and the neck plate has a different one. Is this normal?

Thanks in advance for any help!

the neck plates or J plates started at 1 with the first JS 1 and continue on, so whatever number you have that many JS guitars have been made at the time your guitar was produced, the one after it will be one higher and so on

So, if mine starts with a 0 on the neck plate, how does that fall in the sequence?

Thanks!

They are six digit numbers if I am correct so it was 000001 in the beginning. I don't know what numbers they are up to now but it could very well be 065345 or whatever, meaning there's 65,000 JSs made since the beginning. I don't have any of my JSs handy to check at the moment.
