    I am about to tape the back of the headstock and edges of the fretboard and sand the finish off the back of the neck, then oil that too.
    If you look at the headstock, I took a torch and put a cigarette burn at the top of the headstock, near the nut, too.

    Also I brought with me my classical guitar so I can't take two guitars in an airplane.. I'm thinking of just detaching the neck from the body and putting them in my bag.. Would that fuk with the guitar in any way?
    Pickups are Dimarzios so unless you're after a specific sound from them they shouldn't need replacing. Personally I think the boutique pickup scene is mostly cork sniffing. It's amazing what a difference adjusting pickup and pole piece height and some EQ can make.

    As for taking the neck off you should be fine however if you're doing it regularly you should probably consider having threaded inserts put in so the screws are going into steel threads as opposed to wood.

    Shouldn't affect the sound at all. If you decide to clean them make sure you cover the coils with something and avoid steel wool. You don't want that stuff getting into the pickups.
