    My bass is making a buzzing sound untill you touch any of the knobs or the strings, then it stops.

    It's a Ibanez sound gear.

    Any ideas on what it is, (Im pretty sure it's not the eath wire)

    If the buzzing stops when you touch the strings, the earth wire is correctly installed. To eliminate the buzz entirely you'll need to sheild your bass. Check the Pickups FAQ.
