 Get a peizo electric buzzer from a dollar store (itt'l be inside anything that has an alarm or buzzer)

Tape it to the guitar pick (the peizo elementr is paper thin), and solder the 2 leads to a headphone jack.

Plug headphone jack into an amp, and walah!

google "peizo pickup" for more ideas.

For what kind of a guitar?

You can't use a microphone like a regular electric guitar pickup (those work using a magnetic field to pick up the string vibrations), but you can reconfigure a microphone to fit into an acoustic guitar. This wouldn't be a pickup proper, it would be a guitar mic.
