That's how it's connected. There's nothing else. XLR from the mic in
the DI box, 1/4" from the DI box to a 1010LT input.

Not only there's signal, but it is actually quite loud with the mic at
about 8 inches, away from the guitar sound hole - more like pointing at
the bridge.

Never heard about these mics before. I looked it up - seems pretty
good from the description. Original shape. But this one needs +48v
phantom power, which as far as I can see now, would require a new DI
box. Saw it listed for $299. Plus new DI box, that exceeds a bit the
budget.

You noted that w/o a phantom power the output would be too low. Which
is not the case in my setup. Is the role of phantom power in mics one
of amplifying sound vibrations only ?
