raise the action

By sea-girls wreathed with seaweed red and brown
Till human voices wake us, and we drown.

how old is the guitar? If there's damage to teh neck or anything it coudl affect teh sound, or perhaps you have dead frets. Does it only make the sound when pluged into an amp or not? IT might be your pots in teh amp or dust in your electrical components. If it is dead frets you might have to buy a new neck and as well as if it's warped or used. Try raising the action firstly by bringign up your nut or if you have it use the torsion bar inside the neck

Looks like the output jack on your guitar may be either dislodged or damaged. Unsrew it and re screw it in, tighter. Sometimes they come loose and the buzzing happens. If you still get the buzzing, its damaged.

Also, dont put your amp on too loud!

That will happen to me sometimes on my low E string because of the lower frequency of the vibrations, but i think that that is just because it's a big string, and the fact that it's on the end.

What else can you do without raising the action to make it not buzz? You can buy a higher gauge sets of strings or a NEW GUITAR. Seriously, you have to adjust the action 1st, its not that hard, raise it a few turns and test it out. Your neck relief may also be too little and if the action isnt the problem, then your truss rod is.

Reading from ur other thread which u consulted by jenny, you have no neck relief, means that all your strings are touching the fret at the 8th fret. You need to loosen your truss rod to make your neck bow a little more. I strongly suggest only qualified technicians do this, but if you insist on doing so, do it slowly, gradually turn it by 1/8 of a turn and leave it a couple of minutes after each turn to let the wood gets familiarize with the new adjustment (rest). After each rest, retune your guitar to your desired tunings. To adjust the truss rod, remove the string retainer bar and simply open the truss rod compartment (using philip screwdriver), you should see deep inside there's a bolt, use a hex wrench/ allen key to adjust this. Turn it clockwise to to loosen it a anti-clockwise to tighten it.
