The abelian Chern-Simons-Higgs model of Hong-Kim-Pac and Jackiw-Weinberg leads to a Ginzburg-Landau type functional with a 6th order potential on a compact Riemann surface. We derive the existence of two solutions with different asymptotic behavior as the coupling parameter tends to 0, for any number of prescribed vortices. We also introduce a Seiberg-Witten type functional with a 6th order potential and again show the existence of two asymptotically different solutions on a compact Kähler surface. The analysis is based on maximum principle arguments and applies to a general class of scalar equations.
