Thanks all.

I will over time add links to this thread and update the posts. Let me know if there is something you would like to be added.
 
Any hobbiest should have these on the bookshelf, if they are interested in making an electric guitar from sourced parts.
Buy them (the books) used, they're cheaper:

The Guitar Player Repair Guide by Dan Erlewine
How to Make Your Electric Guitar Play GREAT! by Dan Erlewine
The Guitar Handbook by Ralph Denyer 
1001 Guitars to Dream of Playing before you Die by Terry Burrows (Lots of ideas for designing your guitar)
The Fender Telecaster by A.R. Duchossoir
The Stratocaster by A.R. Duchossoir

(I'll add some more when I can look at my bookshelf)
Edit:
DIY Guitar Repair by Pieter J. Fillet
Wood Finishing by Michael Dresdner

I wish I had some books on Guitar wiring and amp maintenance, like how to repair a scratchy pot and such.

Update: 31 August 2022

Using a combination of Google Advanced search and also this forum's search, I have been able to update all the links referenced in this thread, including those which were a bit more obscure to find as the information was buried in a post in a thread. All links should now be working with the new forum software introduced this month.

Also added under the "Notable Build Threads of other members" @Cagey L5S build thread.

If you have a notable build thread or know of one to suggest for inclusion, please let me know.

Notable means that the thread must contain useful build information, how to tips, etc and be comprehensive.
 
Any info on how to add my Primo Build pic from a while ago to my signature?

I have the pic saved.

To add any picture to your signature, click on your username at the top right of the page, then click on signature, and then use the insert image icon just the same as you would in a post. Then save.

Does the pic have to be hosted online somewhere? it wants me to provide a URL?

Yes, you need a URL to somewhere online. It can also be on this site as you can create a personal album in Add Media, or post the image to a thread and then copy the URL link to that and add it to your signature via URL. You can then click on the picture in Signature and edit the size, provide alt text and add a link to it so that when someone clicks on the image it points to a build or gallery thread for example.
