I busted out my acoustic, and noticed the action was cheech and chong high.
the body is noticeably bowed in where the neck hits.
I've loosened the string tension for now to let it rest.
Who's the guru that knows the fix?
pics if needed.
Both acoustics I had that ended up with bowed tops ended up in the bin because it cost less to replace them than it did to repair it. Then again they were only like $600 guitars. If it happened to my Takamine Custom them I'd get it repaired.
In my case both tops needed to be replaced because they were bowed beyond just being flattened.
