mahogany or alder should do nicely. depending if you want a brighter or darker sound.
Mahogany body with maple cap then swan maple (if finished) or bird's eye maple (if unfinished) for the neck is my favorite setup.
mohagany body maple neck are best imo

I suggest you read THIS PAGE to decide what sort of wood would be most suitable for what you want.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

not plywood. unless you're using actives, in which case it doesn't matter as much. mahogany is quite nice imo.
