comment Will leaving the G string off an acoustic guitar for a few days hurt the guitar?
I live pretty far north and I'm cheap with my heating bill--so even if the relative humidity is kept constant the actual moisture in the guitar rises and falls. The truss rod doesn't have to be adjusted, but it makes a small yet noticeable improvement. For high end instruments, especially acoustics, doing a setup at least once a year is good practice.

...and if by chance any further work is needed then it would most likely just be a truss rod adjustment, which is normal upkeep (mine get adjusted a couple times a year to compensate for the seasons)

comment Is there a preferred string gauge for different styles of music?
It's worth noting that there's the common idea that larger strings give a better sound, which is usually accepted without much questions. However Hendrix, BB King, Billy Gibbons, and many other famous guitarists with sought after sounds are known to play very light strings (below .09)

close. Since the device points away from the headstock it would be fine for dive-bombs, but if you the opposite (a reverse dive-bomb?) it would potentially strike the body of the guitar.
