Staining wood?

Hi friends! I am at the point in my new project to think about how I want to finish this dulcimer; The top is maple, with the rest cherry.

I think I would like the maple top a more golden colorĀ (i.e., golden oak) and leave the cherry natural.

What type of wood stain is best/recommended for the soundboard?
