I just finished one.

Your questions mean you are just getting started, best of luck to you!

To try to answer your questions, pickups are personal. Just like I can't tell you what car to drive.. If you have a particular sound in mind, then the friendly folks on this site will have a ton of suggestions.

Wood is a personal preferance also.. If you want traditional, we can help you there, or if you have something in mind.

I did mahogany body, with maple top. I used Gibson Pickups from the 70's I got on craigslist. Certainly not the only choice, maybe not the best choice for you.

Just make sure you think ahead before you route or cut anything. Like making wiring channels in your body before you glue on a top..
