Question fret buzz , kinda wierd ..

hey guys ,

a friend of mine gave me his guitar for some fixing ..
i fixed the trem , some wires ..

he also told me that the 1st and 2nd frets were buzzing ...
well by fixing the trem the buzz went away ..

now a new roblem ..
i get pretty harsh buzzing on the 12th fret on the low E and A string ..
i tried messing with the string action , since it's a hardtail
trem , the action comes for each string individually .. so i messed with that for a while , but still ... it wouldn't stop ...

so i tried the trussrod .. either way , it didnt fix the buzzing ..
im pretty helpless now ...

would it be wise to mess with the string tension ?
or is it possible that just that fret is a bit high ?

btw. its a pretty scrappy Behringer .. so it isnt impossible that
its just a crappy neck :P ..

if anyonehas a clue , i'd be thankful ..
i just wanted to ask you guys for an opinion before i do something
that will damage the guitar ..

Re: fret buzz , kinda wierd ..

Are you sure its the strings buzzing and not the Bridge ?
maybe something is resonating at certain frequencies ?

have you tried a straight edge on the frets,
cover 3 frets and see if it rocks, that will give an idea of how even the frets are.
