If you get a chance to check out a piano store, have a look at the satin finishes on the high-line models done with oooo steel wool.

You can get a range of levels of shiny/dull finish depending on how shiny/dull you want to go. It's nice and light if you're one of those people who believes that tone is affected by the vibration of the wood. (I do)
Forgot to say it's fine with a water based stain as well. I did an SG last year and airbrushed a brown sort of burst effect over a yellow then oiled over the top. A year later I'm very happy with the result.

I've never liked a solo violin, you need at least five for a proper fire.
