Alright, this is what's happening, with as much detail as possible:

My amplifier, the Roland Cube 30X, is solid state. Every time I plug in my gibson SG standard I recently got new (2009) it makes a buzzing noise. This happens with both humbuckers, individually and together. The noise isn't that noticeable on clean channels but with even slight distortion is it noticeable. When I touch the guitar strings, or the metal parts of the input cable, the buzz significantly reduces. You might think it isn't that big of a deal, because I'm touching the strings most of the time, but it is.

It does not buzz when the guitar is not plugged in. It does not buzz when my other guitar, a Yamaha RGX520FZ, is plugged in.
This leads me to believe it is that actual guitar that is causing the problem.

Anybody have any input on this? Are the pickups too high?

Sounds like an earthing problem? Is your amp earthed (lack of expertise shows)
The only 6 words that can make you a better guitarist:

Learn theory
Practice better
Practice more

Yea I would say to play with the height until it buzzes no more and I just bought a gibson sg standard and it buzzed and I couldn't fix it I would go to whoever sold it to you and flip out. Just my way of taking care of things. Lol

Don't mean to be rude but he said only his Gibson buzzes.

sounds like a grounding issue where you are he ground when ur touching the strings u should open the back panel of ur sg and look for any cables that arent connected right there should be one coming from a hole inside from the direction the bridge is that is a ground and it should be soldered to the volume pot if it is loose or not connected thats ur problem re solder it and it should be good

Get a noise supressor pedal (assuming its not a wiring problem). Amps will pretty much always buzz if theres any distortion on them. I would recommend the boss NS-2, but they discontinued it, so shop around. They're also known as sound gates.

Get an NS-2 to solve a fault in one guitar?

The symptom you are describing is of a broken ground wire to the bridge. Open the inspection panels on the back and you will see there will be a wire going between the back of the pots through a hole and up to the tailpiece. It's broken or come adrift.
