I used pledge to shine my neck up and to make it fast playing. Now there is like a oil mark on it and it looks really bad. Did i ruin the pant? Is there a way to fix it?

I use pledge on my fingerboard but wipe it off, not the back of the neck. dont LUBE the back of your neck, it wont help your playing it will just ruin your clothes.

But really, asking the pit for relationship advice is like asking a girl with braces for a blowjob. Ouch.

Well done.
It's the silicone.

The silicone spreaded through a crack of the lacquer in between the layers of lacquer, eventually in the wood.

Silicones are next to impossible to remove.

In your case, you can't even sand the lacquer down because it would spread the silicone all over and more into the wood. You'd have to chip the lacquer off, before flushing more of the silicone out of the wood with loads of mineral spirits and pumping it out with paper cloth.

Terrible idea.

NOTHING attaches to silicone, NO GLUE, NO PAINT, NO LACQUER, NO ROSIN (what protects electrical soldering points).

With time, it seeps in the glue, detaches bindings and inlays.

The silicone on the fretboard contaminates the strings, the strings contaminate the cloth inside cases and bags, contaminates what other guitar you put in the case or the bag.
