    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.

                This is an excellent case for the money. it's extremely light, which for me is a significant factor. It will not protect a guitar the way a Reunion Blues gig bag does or the way a traditional plywood or heavy plastic case does -- but it's like any other piece of equipment: good for some purposes (like normal travel to local gigs) but not for others.

                  If you are looking for an upgrade to the Martin cases that come with their guitars, this is it! The only drawback is that the accessory compartment is not very deep so you can only put about half of what you can fit in a standard guitar accessory case. The case looks great, feels sturdy, and is noticably easier to carry around due to the size and light weight. Worth the few extra dollars.

                  Very little protection for your guitar. There is no padding at all on the bottom of the case. One good size bump and you'll have a hole in your guitar. I was really excited about this case,and seeing TKL when I opened it. I thought it would be a great case. WRONG!. I can't see how Martin would put a high end guitar in this case. A wooden TKL that came with my lower end Martin Is a world better than this case. Push on this case,and watch the inside. You can see it push into where the guitar would be, with very little effort. There is also little storage room in the case.

                    Nice case. Plenty of sturdy hardware. Just wish the accessory box was larger....maybe I just need to carry less stuff! Good case and GREAT price. Glad I waited to purchase!

                    Owner of a D45 Martin Guitar

                    Comments about Martin 640 Dreadnought Hardshell Case:

                    I was going to order the deluxe case for my Martin D45, but after reading the reviews, I will not order it, I have my original case and will just keep it. My D45 is so beautiful, I just wanted to keep it in a more beautiful case, but I didn't see the right results to order the Martin 640 case. Too many people complained about the way it was made. You wanted user remarks, well, this is my thoughts. It is the very first time to write a complaint to you as I have ordered many, probably 10 guitars (6 on one order), and other accesories etc and have always been pleased with every item especially the quick service, and I am not gone for sure, as you are the greatest, cheapest, high quality of all the rest as far as I am concerned but that Martin 640 case didn't go good with me according to prior. customer thoughts.
