Default Guild classical Truss rod?

Anyone know if the Guild GAD-C3 has a truss rod? I found one that I liked but the neck looks like it has a lot of relief in it and I don't see an obvious truss rod and didn't bring a mirror with me.

Found an old SW ad for the same guitar here and it doesn't say there if there is or isn't, but neither do their Cordoba ads which all have them.

Thanks!

There seems to be more and more classical guitars with truss rod nowadays.

IMO it's a nice feature but wouldn't be the main reason I'd choose a guitar.

Still, you could easily find one that you like which has a truss rod.

Go back and check if it does or doesn't have one, it's the best way to be sure.

I've just checked some websites and none of them mention a truss rod. So, good chances there isn't one.

Thanks!

I guess that means the neck is just warped. It's too bad because it was a great guitar otherwise

A luthier should be able to fix the neck, depending on the degree of warp. They have a device that applies steam and pressure to it.
