One thing to consider, is what happens if there is damage to the finish.

I just got back a ukulele with a satin finish. A repair was done to a cracked top, which resulted in a solid fix (underneath the top). However.. the external finish, was a thick satin finish, and the shop (a very prominent one) told me that in order to fill the crack and buff it out.. there would be a glossy area that would stand out and contrast versus the satin finish.

So.. fixing a significantly dinged satin finish, it seems is harder than a glossy one.. at least as I understand it.
