hey

well I was reading a forum on UG the other day and I found out that guitars needed to be oiled and cleaned . I have never oiled my guitar. I don`t know where to it. Also my hands sweat a lot so I don`t know if that helps the fretboard and the neck?

Sweat doesn't help anything. Oiling is what you do to raw timber fingerboards like rosewood and ebony. Lemon oil is the usual thing people use. Dunlop sell a good one.

It isn't essential but it does help your guitar looking nice.

A bottle of polish and cloth will run you less than $10 and really clean up how it looks. It isn't hard and the results are very nice.
Have a good one,

Maple necks are normally lacquered, that's why you don't oil them.

Don't worry about it. My dad has played the same guitar for almost 30 years and only oiled it twice. My guitar I've had for 3 and a half years only shows minimal signs of aging, mostly on the strings and fretboard, and it doesn't make the guitar any more difficult to play.

just buy the complete dunlop guitar maintenance kit and follow the instructions
