...what would you change it to?

As much as people (myself included) generally like the MDs, I can see how having Flipper festooned on your uke might not be for everyone. So, just hypothetically-speaking, what other type of bridge would you want?

A different animal? A Hawai'ian island? A mermaid? A boring old rectangle?

Or maybe you could get meta and make the bridge in the shape of a ukulele? (And that ukulele could have a dolphin bridge. Oooooh...)

Thoughts?

You'd also have to change the name?

A crescent moon or smile would be nice.

I swapped the bridge on my dolphin for a boring old rectangle (http://img198.imageshack.us/img198/2861/a34fw66gd.jpg).

I like it.

Why not the ONLY indigenous land mammal to the islands the ʻŌpeʻapeʻa?
Something shaped similar to this:

Blobfish.

Maybe that would work better as an inlay on a Moore Bettah.

a Coastal Salish salmon (think PNW totem pole design) or a bat or eagle. Actually, I wouldn't, since I have a really hard time wrapping my mind around even owning a Makala Dolphin uke.

A rectangle is good for me, or maybe a simple art deco/ craftsman style design. But, if it had to be an animal shape, a flying bird might be nice... eagle, sea gull etc. ... simplified and not too busy.
