I have a DPA mic. At a recent gig I had trouble getting enough volume in the range of the higher notes of the first string. Since the DPA mic is aimed somewhere around the fretboard extension over the body, and/or over the soundhole itself, how can it pick up the vibrations from the top of the guitar itself?
Seems to me that much of the high-end must come directly from the spruce top, not just "air modes" from within the guitar. Regular mics placed one to three feet from the guitar can, of course, have "access" to the vibrations from the top of the guitar.
