What do you mean when you say oiled it down? The fretboard?
And out of interest (I have a few electric guitars) how do you deal with any crackling from the electrics (knobs, jack sticks, and so on - do you oil or spray them with any magic stuff?).
Lemon Oil applied to a rag...
Knobs/pots that crackle can sometimes be 'cleaned' by rolling them back and forth a few gazillion times. I know that pots can be cleaned for real, but I don't know how.
I think we had a discussion like this a while ago. I've never used lemon oil on a guitar, because once I read something in some magazine or somewhere that said not to. The reason why goes something like this-- Lemon oil is a petroleum product (it's not made from lemons, it's just lemon scented). Its contents are not regulated. It may contain thinners or other stuff that's not good for the wood. OK, I can't be more specific than this, all I really remember is that I read it once. The traditional fretboard refresher is boiled linseed oil. Boiled, not raw. Don't try to boil it yourself, you'll have to move out for a week and then clean up the smoke damage. If a neck is really grimy, you can use 0000 ("four-ought") plain steel wool on it, moving in the direction of the grain only. There are other products sold for fretboards, but I wouldn't use them, only because I don't know what's in them (trade secret, y'know). And don't use olive oil, like this jerk I used to know did.
You shouldn't wipe it anywhere else on the guitar, because any kind of oil could get under the finish through a chip or crack and discolor the wood, or even cause it to swell and worsen the finish damage.
Crackling from the electronics can sometimes be fixed by exercising, but it works a lot better if you take the cavity cover (pickguard, plates, whatever) off (removing knobs and the nut underneath them is usually a good idea) and give the pot or switch a spray with zero residue electronics cleaner. There's a hole in most pots for this. Spray the stuff in and let it run out, catch the runoff with a rag if possible, then do the gazillion times thing (maybe a few minutes will suffice). Do it again the same day. I've read that not all electronics cleaner is the same, that some brands work better than others. I've used CRC with good results.

plus whatever else you might possibly need for messing up a perfectly good guitar.
