Recording acoustic guitar percussive techniques

I am wondering about recording acoustic guitar tunes where the player actually uses the guitar as a drum for parts of the song. The percussive hits are vastly louder than the actual playing, and I want to get it all in one take. What would you guys do about this? Automation?

Edit: I realized I put this in the wrong forum section, maybe someone can move it?
