A sparse tru oil finish is the closest to a raw feeling neck you can get without using an actual raw neck. Really thin satin urethane would be second to that, then satin nitro. Nitro can be thinner than urethane but the stickier feel of the nitro won't be as good for that totally smooth raw feeling.

Nothing will compare to an actual raw neck though.
