My 12th fret is not in tune with my open note. Does this have to do with the truss rod? Should I try to fix it? If so, how do I go about fixing it? And if it's possible, I'd rather not have to bring it in to get it fixed.

PLEASE HELP!!!

Don't adjust your truss rod. You should be able to be the saddles on your bridge forward and backward. If the 12th fret is flat, make the scale shorter. If its sharp, make it longer.

The problem is with the saddles, they should be adjusted so that playing a harmonic where you rest your singer above the 12th fret produces the same note as the 12th fret.

Yes, the only reason you would adjust your truss rod is if the neck is bowed, or else it will damage it, take everyone else's advice.
