Unstoppable fret buzz.. please somebody help me!

My 7VWH buzzes from fret 1 to 24.. the neck bow wont go any more relieved and the action is about 1cm at the 24th fret and it still buzzez I just dont get it.. Im sure it shouldnt buzz!

is their something wrong with the neck?

I cant get it setup right I can setup a guitar with a floating trem normally but the buzz on this thing just wont go! it's really bad aswell not just a little buzz it's like louder than the strings all together.. and the neck doesnt look warped at all..

If the action was 1cm you couldn't get it to buzz if you tried. Did you mean 1mm? If you did it's way too low and of course it's buzzing.

I don't know your mileage, so please don't feel offended if the following seems stupid: are you sure you're getting fret buzz? someone told me once his guitar 'buzzed' everywhere...turns out the trem bar socket was very loose and 'rattled' loud.

btw...I don't know if 'rattle' was the word I was looking for, I hope it's understandable.

Rich, 1mm no lol.. I was being pedantic in saying 1cm... but I took it to a shop this morning and they've shimmed the neck I think.. plays great now anyway.
