So if one was to make a guitar and wanted to put pine on it either on top or as a faceplate or something, how would you finish it to make it ok? also what other really knotted woods are there? and how would they sound?

If you're going for knotted wood, just is it as a top. The knots would probably have a negative effect on the tone if used as a full body.

As for finishing, I don't have an answer for that.
