Did you lower the bridge back down to it's original level?

You tried raising the pickup height as well?.. seeing as they're now "lower" than they were before.
There's a good chance that what I've written above is useless and if you take any of the advice it's your own fault.

i havent tried that. but it only looks like the bridge pickup is raiseable.

The distance between strings and pickups will impact the output volume. The greater the distance between your strings and pickup, the lower your output signal strength.

Conversely, the closer your strings are to your pickup the louder the output signal.

So to solve the problem, lower your strings to the pickups to increase the height of he pickups.

Not necessarily, there are other causes of fretbuzz, you need to identify the problem and not assume automatically that raising your string height is the only solution.

Fretbuzz can also be caused by:
1. A bolt-on neck that's slipped out of position
2. Poorly adjusted neck relief
3. A fret that's coming out
4. Frets that need levelling

I suggest you bring your guitar in for a setup. From the way things sound, you're not he least familiar with setting up your guitar.

Actually when you have it dead straight you're gonna get fretbuzz. You need to have a slight bow in the neck so there is relief that will allow the strings to vibrate without hitting the neck.

Also are you using .09 gauge strings? If so tr switching to 10s My Ibanez had a massive fretbuzz problem on the A, D and G string. One string would buzz no matter how many professionals I brought it to. Then I went up to 10s and there is hardly any more buzz due to the higher string tension.

It's too dead straight. Try loosening the truss rod to add relief. This will raise the strings off the upper frets and reduce the chance of buzz.
