Anyone know what mic is on the acoustic? I was thinking a KM86 or a Beyer M160? If possible, I'd like to know the vintage as well. Thanks

You're asking a lot, considering that there is no sound file or picture to go on!

There is perhaps an attachment you forgot to add?




But okay, I'll bite!

I think its a very rare Telefunken RE-40 (sold by Sears under the name of the "NEMS Super-Beatle Electro-Phonic Solo-Mic").

Here's a demonstration:



Click on the image above to experience the
excellence that IS this remarkable microphone!



Ahhh... and below is a bit of wasted space added by the software at GS, which I cannot figure
out how to make disapear (or even to link to anything other than the photo above):
