Having some extremely annoying electrical issues!

Ibanez IC-300 with Seymour Duncan Dimebucker/'59 combo.
In the past 2 months, I've replaced the jack, 3 way toggle, and
just today, bought a new 500k volume knob. Keep in mind ALL
these parts are NEW, right out of the packaging.

Setup is a basic 2 humbucker / 1 volume / 3 way-toggle.

So, I put in the NEW volume pot, hook the guitar up to my
amp and turn up the volume pot. All I got was some scratchy
noises from the pot, and dead silence. Nothing at all from the pickups.
However, when I touch almost anything metal on the guitar, it makes a
buzz/hum... opposite of what it USED to do.

I've checked the wiring about 1,452 times... I dont get it, it such a simple
setup and all my parts are brand new. Tried a different cable, my amp is
fine, etc etc..

WTF?!?!?1

Are you sure you have grounded the guitar properly?

Yea... Did you ground the bridge to the back of the pot? If touching it completes the circuit you're missing a ground wire somewhere for sure.

When I touch anything metal on the guitar, it STARTS buzzing...
(not the typical grounding problem of 'touching metal and the
buzzing STOPS')

Hi. I'm a "SD Tone Expert" and would like to help with this.

First thing to check is, have you accidentally got the two wires to the jack the wrong way round?

After that, I'd need to see the diagram you're working from and we can go from there.
