http://www.stewmac.com/shopby/item/0532
This is a great referance for building guitars and i realize a lot of people don't consider cbg in the same catagory as an electic there really close to each other one is just a bit cruder than the other.

Melvins book can be had from a lot of sources just do a search i got mine off ebay shipped for about 15 bucks.
