Adjust the truss rod. If you don't know how to do it, it's better to get a tech to do it, but you gotta learn sometime.
Making the neck more bent will raise the action and probably aleiviate string buzz. Which way to adjust it is the question.
Turn it 45 degrees in what ever direction and let it sit for a few hours. If you've got more string buzz you've turned it the wrong way. Try again. Never turn more than an eighth of a turn.
