Lives for gear

Those are DPA mics (besides the overall look, you can see the DPA microphone fixed-holder and lettering.) Appears to be the 4011. I'm guessing the newer 4011A vs the 4011TL because it looks like the capsule can come off (slightly shinier than mine which are fixed.) It's possible it is the 4015 (wide cardioid) or 4018 (super cardioid) because they look the same from a distance but I doubt it is anything other than the 4011 (cardioid). On the "A" series, the capsules are swappable on the same microphone body to have different pick-up patterns. In general, they all sound very much the same just narrowing/widening the pickup field.
And yes they are awesome on acoustic guitar (and many other things.)
