    I have an MIJ Jazz that buzzes on the 15th/ 16th fret on the A and D strings only. The only way I've been able to get rid of the buzz is to set the string height annoyingly high. Truss rod adjustments have yeilded moderate success.

    Is it a problem withe the frets needing to be leveled? Or something else? Any Ideas?

    Yup, you probably have 1 or 2 high frets there.
    Take it to a service tech for a fretjob.
