Do the wood finish Ibanezes need to be oiled?

My guitars have always had a coating or lacquer or some type of protective finish on them.

I was thinking about that RG471AH that I like, and the body seems like it's just wood, and it feels different than my other guitars. Would that need any sort of extra maintenance to keep it in good condition? What about those acoustics that aren't coated in anything and just feel like wood?

I hope I'm asking this question clearly. Obviously I don't really know what I'm talking about.

I am pretty sure they put lacquer finish and sand to matt for those models. Oiled finish looks quite different. In a way, the grain will be popped.

They are all sealed. Just usual cleaning required.

I'm a JS6 (natuaral mahogany) guy. Always worried about it, as I'm a a sweater!!

In my hour or so playing sessions - i'm a hobby player - have never noticed an issue.
