I bought this for my D-41 because it is has more room than the Martin 640 case that came with the guitar. It actually has room for strap, capo, tuner, spare strings, etc.. This particular aftermarket 545 case didn't have the same quality controls that the ones had that came with my Custom Shop D-28 and my D-45V; however, it is still a great case. Musician's Friend delivered faster than I thought possible, too. Great job y'all. Thanks!

This case came with my Martin HD-28v, and not a couple months after having the guitar/case the handle fell off slamming the case on the pavement with the guitar inside. While the handle is not a huge deal, as it can be replaced just avoid this case. There are better quality options for the same and less money.

        Comments about Martin 12C545EC Vintage Dreadnought Guitar Case:

        Better than the thermo-plastic IMO...however
        Velour lining is not very plush for the price.
        Also, the interior smells like a PLA DOH factory that has no ventilation. In other words, it smells strong and horrible.
        After 10 days of leaving it open in a room with an ozone generator, it's starting to diminish most of the offensive smell. Without the OZONE, IT made the whole den area of my house reek!

              I have a Martin D-45 and was disappointed in the plastic case the guitar came in. The only logical thing was to get the best case for the best guitar. This is the right case for that guitar.

                  Wow this case is such an upgrade. I have a 2000 Martin D28 which came with a hard shell case that had 3 latches (never had a tight close). The glue started seeping out from under the felt so it was time for an upgrade. This thing is solid. My D28 fits snugly and perfectly. I love the six latches it has and their placement. It closes firmly and has a great seal so the humidity stays at the right level. I love how plush it is on the inside and roomy top to bottom.

                      Very nice, sturdy case. Snug but excellent fit for my second-hand Martin HD-28V, which seems like a bigger guitar than the D-18. On the outside the case is actually smaller than a Martin thermo-plastic one. Pricey, but worth it for a once-in-a-lifetime guitar.

                        I purchased this case as a replacement for the case that came with my Martin SPD-16R. The new case fits the guitar very well (much better than the origional) and the quality is exceptional. The burgandy color plush interior has very good padding. The 6 latches are nicely plated. Close the lid and the latches line up, close each latch and the over-center latch action is just right resulting in the lid seal to the body that will retain humidity from my humidifier. The fit and finish of this case is exceptional. Overall this case is far superior to the original.
                        Musician's Friend has a great price on this case and, the service and "follow through" is truly the BEST...I had contact with three Musician's Friends Reps and each was very helpful and knowledgeable and thanks to them I made the right choice....
