Mine technically has a one piece top. It’s a one piece body with no cap. I‘ve heard that improves the tone. Not on the forums, but with my own ears.

I know they're not common, but the most I've been able to pin down in one year is six in 2007.

Has anyone information on the missing serial numbers for the R8 from 2004 (owned/once owned by Les Paul Forum member Gibsonian), the R9 from 2005 (once owned by Les Paul Forum member Lenny) or the R9 Murphy-aged from 2007? Any others not on this list?

Over ten percent of them (2) were worked on by Historic Makeovers and have Tom Holmes pickups (I get that). Do any others have changes of note?
I own 972007 in Bourbon Burst. Purchased it new from Dave's

IMO It is the nicest one of the Dave's run. It's the 2007th R9 of the year 2007
