Oil finish is not an option for spalted maple, it needs to be finished.

Spalted Maple has sections that are very hard and other parts that remain somewhat spongey. If you didn't cover the entire guitar not only would your sound be inconsistent, but your top may slowly start to breakdown over time. I like the look a lot, but it doesn't always yield the best tone.

Thanks for the answers guys.
What's the most 'non-glossy' finish that could be proposed then ?

Sorry, but Spalted Maple would require a glossy finish.
