    i've got an older epiphone and the A string is dead except when played open or above 12th fret;

    E buzzes; and the D plays except dead on 5th 7th frets; G is fine except for 5th and 7th buzzing

    warped neck or messed up action neck adjustment?

    I've never heard of a string that is dead in portions like this. I would start with a fresh set of what you like.

    There are way too many parameters here. Your setup is all over the place.
    Give it a cleaning, a full setup with fresh strings and see how it goes from there.
    The symptoms you decribe may mean a lack of neck curvature but really it is hard to say.

    Maybe it's fixed (or not) by now?

    He ended up putting a tort guard on it and everything was cool
