Need help with getting rid of fret buzz

So I have an Ibanez RGD7421 (7 string), and I adjusted the truss rod to lower the strings closer to fret board, the problem is the bottom 3 strings have serious fret buzz on certain frets. Is it possible to adjust these 3 strings somehow to get rid of the buzz?

Issue right off the bat. That's not how you adjust the action. You do that at the bridge.

Well part of your problem is that truss rod adjustment isn't to fix the action, but to take bow out of the neck.

Here is a thread in electric guitar that is about guitar setup. I'm sure someone can help you out there: http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/foru...&page=472&pp=20

EDIT: Ninja'd on paragraph 1 ^
