Truss rod adjustment needed?

Doubtful. At most, very slight action adjustment at the saddles, and check intonation.

What about me? My strings have been gradually getting closer to the fretboard, causing the strings to buzz. I tried raising the action, but that didn't eliminate the buzz (I raised it as high as I could stand). The thing is, I got the guitar a few months ago, and it seems this process of the strings getting closer to the fretboard is gradual. Would a truss rod adjustment fix it? I actually adjusted the truss rod about 1-2 months ago, and the strings proceeded to lower themselves further. Maybe it's just getting "broken in"?

Here's a website for some information.

Check the relief of the neck again, and if needed, make your truss-rod adjustments. Once you've made your adjustments, make a mark on the truss rod somewhere so that you can come back to it and see if the truss-rod has moved a little. If you go back to it after a few weeks, and noticed that the neck is still moving, check the mark and see if the rod has moved on it's own.
