By title, I mean, like should you know the wood you intend on using, all the calculations and everything? Any besides pickups, bridge and everything, what else would you need to know?

I plan out everything before i build, draw up mockups, etc.
Every calculation should be done, all wood, supplies etc ready to be ordered, you get the point.

^ If you're not going to be helpful, then why post?

I suggest you go buy How to Build an Electric Guitar by Melvyn Hiscock. Lots of good information. Some important things when you start out are nut width and nut string spacing, bridge height and bridge string spacing, scale length, frets, woods, and the neck joint style.

Oh, I don't want to come off as an irresponsibly dipshit that doesn't think things through. :P I mean, obviously I have thought about body type, neck joint, finish, body wood, neck, fingerboard, bridge, routing, and pickups, but did I miss anything?

That list is a pretty good reference. If you plan on doing a build, I would really suggest you get reading about it. You should also plan VERY extensively.
