    Only the back and sides of the dolphin/shark are plastic. The top, where you get nearly all the sound from, is wood. I got a shark for my daughter a few years ago and it is a really nice little uke. Lots of fun to play. Especially if you consider the ~$50 price tag.

    I too like the look, and sound, of pineapple ukes. I don't think you could go wrong with either purchase as long as you buy it from someone who will do a proper set up. As others have said, this is very important on the lesser priced ukes and will make playing them much more fun/comfortable.
    Main players:

    Soprano: Laughlin 2K | Maui Music Deluxe Mango

    Concert: Collings UC2 | Talsma Style 3 | 16" Ono | Ono Pineapple | Blackbird Clara

    Tenor: Collings UT3SMB

    Baritone: LoPrinzi

    Thanks for correcting me. That's good to know... and even better to remember next time
    ... or maybe I'm wrong
