There's not much you can do there. In acoustic guitars, the tone depends much more of the wood than an eletric. You can't just go to your EQ and cut the lows and boost the highs (unless you have an eletric-acoustic). About the neck, well, you can't just replace it for another one in an acoustic. That's very complicated and almost impossible to do with satisfatory results. The only thing you can do is lower the action for faster playing, but I think the tone is much better in an acoustic with high action (mine is about 3,0 mm in 21st fret).
I have a Washburn EA20 Festival Series that I love. I use .013 strings and I don't have problems with tone, because of the wood, of course. The neck is also very thin and fast. It's just great for me!
