Finish will not vastly impact the sound (I said VASTLY), unless you are putting on a thick poly finish. Any oil finish or relatively thin lacquer or poly finish will work just fine. A lot of people say that an oil finish allows the wood to “breathe”, but I don’t think it makes a huge difference. Oil should work fine, though it will not provide a ton of protection.
