This is similar to: Which paint is better for wood, blue or green ?
Want amber tint- use amber, Want is a white as possible – use clear. As simple as that.
If intend to finish it further look at the wax content of the shellac and whether it is compatible with the next finish.

Amber shellac on maple looks beautiful.
