fret buzz/middle of neck only

So i've got my used rg560 playing pretty well other than some buzzing while barring the 3rd and 4th strings around frets 5-12. I've tried shimming the neck pocket and locknut using cut up pieces of playing cards. Tried bowing the neck and adjusting the edge trem. Last night I lowered the trem and got it playing nice from the 12th to 24th. I then made the neck almost flat. Still some buzz in those same areas. Is it possible that the middle of the neck was played the most and the frets have more wear there? All the frets seem to not have much wear. I have about 1.5mm to 1.7mm gap at the 24th fret. I only really notice it when playing it unplugged or with the amp really low. Any thoughts? I have read tech section a lot.
