I have a JTV-59 and I initially setup the guitar to have a .002" relief like a Les Paul and was able to get the action fairly low using .009 - .042 strings but with the neck that straight I got a slight buzz if I picked hard on the low E below the 7th fret. I added a 1/4 turn of relief and that cleared up. End action is 3/64ths" on the high string and 5/64ths" on the low string side (measured at the 12 fret). I can still get it to buzz but I have to hit the string with wreckless abandon.

Did you try putting your left hand on the tuners - one by one?
I've had guitars that resonated such that giving noise similar to buzz at certain notes - and putting hand on one of the tuners it went away.
Adjusting the knob - tightening a bit - did the trick.
Resonating noises are funny in the way they can make it through the entire guitar.
It could be untight screw at pickup frame, cover on bridge, one potentiometer and many other things.
Just a thought.
