Fret Buzzzzzzzzzz

Hey there. Im trying to setup my Schecter Hellraiser Hybrid C-7. I know, first mistake its not an Ibby :-). Anywho, I have this guitar that I bought before my JC7 and THe market is slow right now for 7 strings in my little city so seems I may have to hold onto this. I have it setup half descent but I cant seem to get rid of the buzzing. Its worse around 14th - 16th fret. THeres buzzing all over because I have it set low but there more so. I tried plaing with the truss rod just to see if I could get rid of it and I backed the rod off completely so It was in extreme upbow and it still buzzed down there. The buzzing went away everywhere else but the higher frets. Is this a sign that I need to level my frets ?
