The trouble with prefinished? There are a lot of cuts to be made---and nail holes---and a matching riser----so there is a good chance that the prefinished will have some cut and patch marks to hide.

Finishing a staircase is a lot of work---if you can avoid the problem of hiding all cuts then,consider it---I have always used raw wood and finished after installing----
