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.
