That is the finish I am going for. I am afraid of using poly or similar. I have heard different things about how it changes the tone. I have heard that tung oil is good and for paint, to use a nitrocellulose paint as opposed to a poly finish unless you can keep the poly to a couple thousandths of an inch. I am not a paint expert and I want the wood grain look, so tung oil it is. I only play my guitars in the comfort of my home so I am not needing anything that will protect the wood from denting.
