The acoustic guitar that you hear on "Live On Two Legs" is from a Hamer "Duo-Tone" acoustic/electric guitar. It's a semi-hollow body guitar that has electro-magnetic humbucker pickups (for an electric sound) as well as a piezo bridge-saddle pickup (for an acoustic sound). The Duo-Tone also has two separate output jacks (one for the electric pickups, one for the acoustic pickup) which allows the player to have separate control over the sound he/she is going for. With a blending pedal (such as an Ernie Ball Stereo/Pan pedal), the player can have either a fully electric/overdriven tone, a fully clean, acoustic guitar tone, or a blending of both. During the recording of studio records, Stone or Mike would choose to use a true 100% acoustic guitar for acoustic parts, but on stage the Duo-Tone is more convenient, flexible, and sounds pretty good, so it's a better fit for the road.
