Get a kit.

If you have to ask here how to build one then you don't yet have the skills to build one from scratch.  I'm an experienced wood worker and build several kits already.  I failed building a guitar from scratch also.

For acoustic guitars, it is all in the woodworking.

For electric, you need a pickup, and an amplifier, search:

DIY guitar pickup / pickups
Guitar Amp / Pre-Amp
Piezo contact microphone
Jack White bottle guitar

I made my pickups by making a wooden or iron ferrous form, and wrapped it with old insulated copper from an old CRT screen. My amp was a kit from the local electronics store for $12. A simple pickup can be made from a solenoid with a bolt inside. ( if the solenoids center pin is not iron )

The only real issues I ever had as well, was some noise from bad ground connections and interference noise.

You can make a REALLY COOL guitar out of an old gas-can or out of a cigar box. Do a search on youtube for "cigarbox guitar".... or "gascan banjo". Check out this guy username "rpeek" and his gascan banjo...

take a look at what shane speal does on youtube on his cigarbox guitar. These things can be built with a little work.
