Any number of mics can capture a tone like this:  it's the guitar and musician, mainly, that makes tones like this.
Many large or small diaphragm mics are capable.

All the best,

Tone is in the guitar, not the mic. An expensive condenser will yield the best results mic wise but the "tone" must be present to record.

What mic do you use to get this tone?

The trick isn't in the mic, its in the Mike. Or the Tom or the Dick or the Harry. Its in the person playing the guitar and in the guitar itself. Any decent condenser or ribbon in a decent sounding room with get those results so long as the person playing can deliver the goods. You could probably stick a lowly drummer beaten SM57 in front of that guy and get way closer to those results than you'd expect.

 
If gear was the determining factor, we would all have a shelf full of Grammies and a pocket full of change.  -microapp

Having also read some of the comments, a pop shield maybe also be a good idea, just in case of ejaculate.

Re: What mic do you use to get this tone? 2018/06/21 14:21:29 (permalink)
Apparently none.  Or maybe the reverb comes from the room and distant micing.
 
An apocryphal has Roy Clark or Acuff or one of those old dudes finishes a session and a gofer approaches and tells him "Your guitar sounds great!".  One of the Roys leans it against the wall and sez, "Yea, how does it sound now?"

Re: What mic do you use to get this tone? 2018/06/21 14:31:58 (permalink)
so, in the spirit of forward movement...
 
i have no knowledge of this recording,
but when i do my own acoustic recordings, 
the choice of the mic is first..
 
but then, how it is gain staged.... and whether it goes pure into a preamp and THEN into the  DAW,
or is run thru outboard gear, is key.
 
on this kind of recording, i would want:
1. preamp
2. EQ
3. compressor
 
all run before it hits the convertors.
 
then, at that moment, the sum is greater than the parts.
 
so, yea, the mic might be important,
but if you want that presence, and immediacy, it's more about the gain staging and setting of the eq and compressor.
 
etc, ad naseum

perhaps, that the microphone's placement had a significant impact on the sonic presentation...

this is a standard given.
mic placement is the art of engineering.

In case OP is interested... at 11 seconds, you can actually see the mic setup in front of him: It appears to be two small diaphragm condensers in an X-Y Coincident setup.

Exactly. You can see them from 4 seconds, before it goes in close.
