I have a Gibson SG Special I purchased around a year ago and when I first got it I noticed some fret buzzing on the higher GBE strings. I raised the bridge and action and I got rid of it but the bridge and action were too high. I’d notice that on frets 12+ the strings were too high off the guitar which made it awkward to finger. I took it to a Guitar Center and had someone who worked there look at it he said some fret buzz was ok, he did say that my bridge/action were too high so he lowered it. He did it for free cause their guitar tech guy wasn’t in. I still get the damn buzzing!!!!!!!! I suggested adjusting the truss rod to give it more of a bow, but the guy said my set up was perfect. Would adjusting the truss rod get rid of this annoying buzz, or should I find out when a guitar tech will be in and pay someone to fix it?

Sounds like you need to relieve tension on your truss rod.
well it looks like adjusting the Truss rod did fix it. I didn't have to turn it that much at all, I raised the bridge just slightly also to make sure it was completely gone and now my SG doesn't buzz at all!
