    does acoustic guitars have truss rods

    if it does you can get a professional to adjust it

    Its not because of that.
    The neck has bent because of temperature and humidity changes.

    If the wood is not seasoned properly, temperature and humidity changes affect the neck adversely.

    The only thing to do is to adjust the truss rod.

    Another easier thing would be get the action lowered. This will enable you to bring the strings closer to frets.
    However, some strings MAY start buzzing at certain frets.
    The only way out of it is to adjust truss rod.

    ^But Guitar's like hobners and Givsons have a really short truss rod. Its not even halfway down the neck. What in that case?
