My understanding is oak is not considered a great tone wood. Keep in mind that if you look around here, you will see people using all kinds of wood for guitars including MDF, plywood, OSB, left over laminate flooring and even that particle board from a kitchen counter. There are also guitars made from things like carbon fiber, aluminum and old road signs. I'm sure oak will be just fine. Unless you are doing an a/b comparison with a custom $5k guitar at a sound lab, it probably won't matter. More importantly, oak looks amazing when finished. I am looking forward to pics of the final product here.
