My cheap-ass Applause acoustic has an adjustable neck.

So, probably.


Truss rods are required for instruments with steel (high tension) strings. Without a truss rod, the guitar's wooden neck would gradually warp (i.e. bend) beyond repair due to applied high tension. Such devices are not normally needed on instruments with lower tension strings, such as the classical guitar, which uses nylon (previously catgut) strings.
~Wiki article Truss Rod

Not all truss rods are adjustable.
