String height

So my strings were set quite low and i tried to fix it myself. It made difference, the strings got higher and some buzzing disappeared.

The problem is that when raise the strings they move more around the 12-24 fret than 1-12 fret. The buzzing is around frets 3-5 E and A strings.

If i would raise them to completely stop the buzz, the strings will be to high around the 12 fret, which makes it harder to play.

How can i fix this?

Adjust truss rod and bridge height.

Adjust your truss rod so that the neck is completely flat (use a straight edge and be careful not to strip the truss rod nut), then add a little bit of a curve to the neck to give the strings room to vibrate - it should be very subtle. A well-made guitar with properly level frets should be able to get pretty low action with no problems after that.

You have some high frets up near the nut and need to get your frets leveled. A truss rod adjustment isnít going to do anything for buzzing that far from the middle of the neck.
