Re: fret buzz
Yeah, sounds like you need to loosen the truss rod a little more. If the open strings ring fine you don't need a shim.

Re: fret buzz
A shim won't help in this case.
How much relief is there in your neck? (see Ibanezrules.com for a tutorial on setup)
It sounds to me like your neck is too straight. That usually causes low fret buzz.
Just for reference, since all guitars and preferences are different, I typically set up my guitars with about a .3 mm relief at the 8th fret and my action is about 2.1mm -1.6mm (low to high) at fret 24. Lower than I used to since I had a stroke and it's not as easy to play any more. But I digress...
I get little to no buzzing, depending on the fret wear and they play like a dream.
Unless you're looking for crazy low action (1mm or less) I wouldn't suggest a relief of less than .2mm. Any straighter and you're going to have buzz just about everywhere.
