"The Principles of Correct Practice for Guitar" - Jamie Andreas. It's not music theory based or anything but I've found it helpful for making my practicing more effective.
i suggest printing off some of the articles on UG so that you have physical copies, besides, anything you can get from a book, you can find for free on UG anyways.

Pffffffft schematics

Although i guess the OP will have to get used to reading them if he's going to buy a bugera..

along with fire escape routes...

Look at the Guitar Grimoire series... I have two of them (green and the brown one) and i love them. If you can, try and get the green one since it centers on scales and practice exercises. The brown one will give you a good basic understanding on chord and scale construction.

I must stop wasting time in The Pit and practice!
Hows the John Petrucci Rock Discipline my cousin told me to get it and he basically swears its the best book written
RGT books. They're basically the standard for defining what a professional electric guitarist in the UK is. They'll show you every single chord/scale you need to know from popular music, but they are best used in conjunction with a music teacher who can help you understand it.
