I have a model 640 Martin hardshell case that my 2003 Martin D-28 came in and shortly after I owned it the hot glued nylon webbed strap did come loose. I must say that I was leery about ordering another model 640 case. I just received my new 640 case for my Martin HD-28 and I'm glad to see that SKB, the manufacture, changed the position of the nylon webbed strap, and the strap is now secured with rivets and not just glued in. I would recommend the model 640 case for any Martin or similar dreadnought guitar. Keep in mind that is not as plush as the 545E Geib style case but it is about as good as it gets for a plastic hardshell case.

I have owned several Martins throughout my lifetime, and always thought that I should upgrade to a better case to protect my investment. Well today, I decided to do just that, after this case closed on my D-28 and put a large scratch in it. The metal edge that runs around the lip of the case is just waiting to hurt your guitar! I have heard horror stories from friends about this, but figured that I was too careful to have it happen to me. This case is like a bear trap. The lid can't be relied on to stay open while you are removing or replacing your prized possession. The outside of the case is very slick, and wants to slide and fall. The inner storage compartment is too small. For a little more, you could have a Geib-style case. Bottom line, this case serves a purpose, but your beloved Martin deserves better treatment.

            Overpriced Case

            Comments about Martin 640 Dreadnought Hardshell Case:

            There are much better (and lower cost) cases available. This case has an extremely shallow storage compartment. It is otherwise a very average case that is way overpriced. The only reason I can see people getting this case is because it is branded "Martin Guitar".

            Perfect fit for my D-18, nice "fur" on the inside, well-made, good space inside for extras like tuner and extra strings.

                EXCELLENT GIFT for my husband.
                He has a Martin Guitar and first case fell apart
                WE are sure that this one will be better.
