Truss won't do much near 7th and beyond.

Good chance there is a hump as the f.board extension crosses onto the body. Careful fretwork can remedy this.

That's my first guess anyhow...

Just one string? Check for a high fret

The neck is out of adjustment. Now more strings are buzzing.

It sounds like the neck is back bowed. Try loosening the truss rod nut 1/4 turn at a time until the fret buzzing stops.

Measure the amount of bow in the neck. If it is in the range of about .005" to .01", loosening the truss rod isn't likely to remedy the situation.

Adjusting the truss rod is not a fix-all solution. It should not be the go-to solution for any problem. It is the remedy to specific problems.
