Acoustic guitars?

Anyone know of an acoustic that has low action or how you can lower the action on one?

The action, or overall set up on most guitars can be set up to your personal preferences.  You can tweak the truss rod and/or file down the nut and even the saddle if necessary.  Depending on the condition of the guitar, the frets may also need to be filed and dressed.  Do you already have an acoustic or are you looking at buying a new one?

There several methods to set up an acoustic guitar.  You can either take it to a good luthier (i.e.; not someone at Guitar Center) or if you feel up to it, DIY:

My Seagull plays almost as easy as my electrics. It was good off the shelf, but got better once I had my guitar tech work on it.
It was worth the $75 to have it done.
