I just finished soldering my custom guitar yesterday, and I strung it and plugged it in today.

As soon as I plugged it in, there was a ton of buzzing that decreased slightly when I put my hand on the jack plate or the lead, but was still loud. I have two metal toggle switches in my guitar and whenever I touched them, the buzzing worsened.

It's a Strat using S-Tastic Expanded wiring seen here (scroll to the bottom):

What causes this? What can I do to fix this?

Thanks.

See that's what I suspected the problem was. I attached all of the grounds to a wiring which i soldered to the back of my Floyd Rose bridge.

to my knowledge that grounding wire is supposed to be soldered to the claw thingy where the springs are attatched.. unless thats what you mean by the back of your trem, try resoldering the wire there
