Hello everyone, I have an issue with my guitar

Whenever I play the low E string (doesnt matter if im fretting it or not) I can hear some horrible buzzing coming from my amp, and it continues all accross the fretboard, gets even worse after the 7th fret or so, and just keeps getting worse as it goes

Even when I put the action up ridiculously high, it still made that noise, I took it to my local guitar shop and they said it was fine... nothing wrong with it, yet me and all my friends can hear the noise, which sounds like a vaccumm, kind like fret buzz but i dont think thats it because it still does it even if I play it open with the action really high.... im confused, this guitar would be great if it wasnt for that, so I want to fix it.

I've messed with the truss rod but not more than 1/2 of a turn because I know it can be dangerous

I've tried switching strings brands, i've gone through DR, Elixir, Ernie Ball, etc, using heavier gaugues in order to get more tension (less buzzing, i thought) but nothing has worked.

Every other string is totally fine, and I recently moved and there arent any guitar techs around... so I need to do the work myself

Here are some pics so you can see the neck, action, anything that might be helpful

Can you take a picture like this to see if the neck is strait?
You can call me Aaron.

It doesn't really look bowed, is the nut tightened all the way?

I experienced something like this. It turned out to be a loose screw rattling. I went through and tightened up everything, and the problem went away. However, my rattle, which sounds similar to the one you describe, only occurred at certain frequencies. It’s worth a shot to look for loose parts, though.
It could also be a small tear in the speaker cone, and makes this noise in response to the lower frequencies.

I would consider the speaker cone thing, but it also happens when I play same notes on different strings

like, 5th fret A string, 10th fret E string, the one on the E string sounds all messed up even though they're both D

Hey, so I found out that the buzz is gone whenever u turn the tone knob all the way down, it doesnt slowly fade away as i turn it, but once its all the way down, the buzz is completely gone

Maybe its because it blocks out the frequencies? i dont know, i cant get a good tone with the knob all the way down, though

The tone knob is looser than the volume knob

I tried to tighten it but I dont know how, I opened the back and it doesnt have any screws or anything. I googled how to tighten knobs and they all said to tighten screws from the back...
