Ok so ive got a rose wood fretboard and a maple neck, lemon oil is safe to use to clean my FB right?

EDIT: And before that a cloth with some windex to clean it? Just making sure i dont mess up before i take action lol

As long as it goes on the fretboard and not the neck you should be fine. I usually just scrape off the skin with a pick and lemon oil it.

I recently learned a secret, if you buy a valve oil which is supposed to be used with trumpets it has exactly the same ingredients as specialised rosewood cleaners. I use a brand called Holtons. It's WAY cheaper than the fret board cleaners and does the same job

Is it true if you leave your strings off for too long the truss rod corrects itself so you have to string it then fiddle with the trust rod? Im kind of scared to do it myself!

True if you leave them off hella long, truss rod counters the strings pull, so without them the truss will eventually warp the neck.

no worry if your changing strings

NO! Lemon oil is evil!!! Don't use it!

Really, lemon oil is bad for your guitar and it should never touch any part of it. If you want to oil your fretboard then use fastfret or linsead oil.
Not taking any online orders.

Well last time I had my guitar set up with new strings put on it by a tech, now I have some pickups I want to put it by the same guy, but just wondering if I take the strings off the day before I take it to the guy, who then restrings it, will the set up be okay so I dont have to pay for another set up?
Using the same make and gauge of string

or would it be easier to ask the guy to set it up as well?

It should be fine but take them off as close to the time you drop the guitar off as possible.
