Can anyone tell what mic is this gorgeous babe using?

Can anyone identify the mic?

i thought it was an m147 at first,
but it has a larger body.

Yep, that's a vintage U47 or U48. Besides the headgrille shape and colour, the Tuchel connector on the end is the giveaway ...

geez...those answers...

its most likely just an original u47 (original connector & nickel top instead of chrome top (most if not all cloners have chrome head))
why on earth does one think its an u48, there are far more u47 out there...

I'd say it's an original U47/U48.
On the piano you see an AKG C12a, that's not a 414 in my opinion.
Somebody's got money there.

Definitely a U47 style, and yes, most if not all clones use a chrome top, including the Grosser mentioned previously, and Flea.

For those who say the Tuchel connector- many clones still use these.

FLEA makes also satin heads, as used in their U48
If it really matters I´d say its a Neumann, look at the badge -EDIT should be plate

And the serial number plate and position is absolutely Neumann.
