if its your truss rod this is how u adjust it. remove the 3 screws on the plastic piece directly behind the nut bridge. rotate the allen head a qtr of a turn to the right NO MORE THAN A QTR TURN!!!!. let set for preferably 48 hrs (24 would be ok if no more adjusting is required) to allow the neck time to adjust. repeat if necessary.... any more than a qtr turn could cause the neck to twist or crack. have patience after each turn and let it set!!!

Hi, problem can be solved.You will need an Allen key. See picture below:
There is a space where the Allen can fit in on the bridge of the guitar. Allen key comes in a set like the above, Take the Allen key and fix it in string B area, find the exact one that will fit in and turn ant-clock wise,it will reduce it in few seconds.
Hope it helped.
Have a nice day...

SOURCE: Our guitar is about 20
LIKELY the problem requires a truss rod adjustment. Best to take this in to a guitar shop for setup as one can do damage. The rod controls the "bend" of the neck of the guitar to set up string to fret clearance.
