- Your nut is too low.
- Your neck has too much or too little relief.
- Your frets aren't level.
- You're trying to adjust the action to an unreasonably low level.

Figure out which one ^ fits your situation.

it could be alot of things...

the truss rod might need adjusted, you can change the height of the saddles (I'm guessing thats what you're already doing?), change the nut (either shim it to go higher, file the slots down, or just a new nut), a fret might not be seated properly, or you might benefit from shimming the neck so it's got a little bit of an angle..

a combination of those things'll probably give you the best result..

when the string buzzes, what fret is it rattling against?
does it only buzz when you fret a certain note?
is the string height consistant over the whole fretboard, or is there one part way too high/ way too low?
does the neck have any bow to it?
