If it's still in print 'Chord Chemistry' by Ted Greene. It's wonderful for explaining how chords are constructed and how they may be substituted. Maybe also check out some of the guitar theory primers from Steve Kahn and Mike Stern.

For something not directly guitar orientated but music theory more generally: Nicolas Slonimsky's 'Thesaurus of Scales and Melodic Patterns'.
