Now we aren't talking about bedroom action either.

My problem is my ovation. I removed shims so the action is awesome but the 12th and 13th frets of the g and d stings buzz. But no other... Wtf? Solutions aside from raising the action?

I'm not educated very well with tuning guitars, but maybe try adjusting the truss rod? Maybe even try lighter strings?

Do you have the picture of the guitar? If so, please post it so that we can see what's the problem.

the 12th or 13th fret, might be a little high.

which is why the guitar was shimmed in the first place.

you can have that fret worked on for a small amount.

Yep, raise the action or lower the frets...Tain't rocket surgery...

This sounds almost like a cut and dry truss rod issue, especially because the buzz is only right in the middle of the neck. Does your guitar have a truss rod?

actually, its pretty close. A good luthier can make a 20$ guitar play as good as a 5000$ guitar. It was finding one that was the problem. I did manage to find one though in Syracuse NY

usually a truss rod adjustment is going to help most around the 9th
fret, especially on an ovation.

the 12th and 13th, seem way too close to the body to
get helped by additional relief.

ts can always measure it out, but i wouldnt add a lot of relief
if he's crazy about his current action.
and he must be if he took out the shims in the first place...
