    Great service!

    Let's be honest, the case is the case, the High Speed Low Drag of CF Martin Guitar cases. So what sets Sweetwater apart is the service. I've never had better service from an online purchase like I received from them. Jared Kalish is my Sales Engineer and the correspondence from start to finish was outstanding, and best of all it didn't have to be, they had me already but the GEM (Going the Extra Mile) pushed me over the top. I will absolute buy from Sweetwater again.

    Guitars are meant to be played, not put in a case.

    But when you have to put it in a case, you can't do any better than the one I got for my beloved HD-35.
    (replaced a generic one that just left a little more wiggle room than I liked. The Martin case is perfection.

    Shipped fast. Helpful staff. At this point in my life, I don't buy a lot of gear, I'm flush, but Sweetwater always temps me jus the same.

    Martin 640 case

    The Martin 640 case works great for my Martin DCPA5K guitar. Thanks to the salesman who checked with Martin about which cases worked for this guitar. Very pleasant experience and quick delivery.

    Sweet Case from Sweetwater

    This is a fantastic case. Of course, I don't believe Martin would place their name on an inferior product in the first place. I stood on the case in order to give it my personal seal of approval. It handled my 215 pounds with grace. This case is not cheap, but it's definitely worth every penny.

    My 2001 Martin HD-28

    I have a Martin 2001 HD-28 and I needed to replace my original case since it had a crack in it. I was worried that my guitar wouldn't fit in this case for some reason, after placing my order, I received a call from a Derick/salesman at sweetwater. I told him my concern. He said he would call Martin to confirm that my guitar/year would fit and said he would try a HD-28 in the case since they have them on site. Martin told him it would fit and Derick called me back before shipping the case. Great salesman as far as I am concerned. I received the case today and my guitar fits like a glove. It is even better then the Original case. This is a really nice case and worth every penny..Thanks Paul

    I would recommend this to a friend

    Very satisfied with my purchase. I called the help/support before making the purchase as I had a question concerning the latches. Representative was very helpful. I ordered the case, it arrived in a timely manner, well packaged and as advertised. I have been very pleased and would recommend this product and this web site.

  • from April 5, 2012

    Great case at a great price

    I've owned my HD-28 for over 30 years and the original hardshell case was showing a lot of wear and tear. I shopped around and Sweetwater had the best price I could find. Great service as well. The case is beautiful, sturdy and fits my guitar like a dream. So far, I have no complaints whatsoever. The sleek, modern design and rich green interior are very classy. The storage compartment is not huge, but is more than big enough for my needs. I use a gig bag for all of my accessories anyway. I would highly recommend this case and will definitely check out Sweetwater when I have needs in the future.

    Martin 640 Case

    It's a nice case that replaced my original case that came with my martin 30 years ago. A bit more snug that my old case but the guitar is firmly held in place now.

    Nice Case

    This is a nice case for light travel. I play the bass mostly but needed a reliable case for my Martin. It is a solid built case and I look forward to may years of ownership.

    Martin 640 Case

    I really like the case everything was excellent in it's shipping when received in a timely manner. I have one small issue not a deal breaker, I had read there was not enouhg room for a guitar stap and that was a accurate statement. I have my original case i purchased in 1976. I just wanted the upgrade. I am very pleased with the case it looks great and in the hand carries very well and balanced.

    Fortunately, the case wore out before the guitar

    After 38 years, the case for my D 35 wore out--it was the hardware that just got tired of opening and closing, I guess. Martin has done a great job of upkeep on the guitar itself, but the case died. I called Sweetwater because they seemed to have the best prices. Kenny was phenomenal. We talked through different cases and I eventually settled on this one. I have learned that this is actually the one that Martin currently supplies for new guitars. It is incredibly light compared to the old one!

    Solid case for a Martin dread

    I just bought this case for my Martin DC-15E. I was concerned by peoples' complaints (on other websites) about the "hold-open" strap being hot-glued and flimsy, but Martin has since updated the design. They've changed the position of the strap, and it's now secured with rivets. The case fits my Martin dreadnought perfectly--no wiggle room, and notches in the padding to make room for electronics (on a LH or RH guitar) and cable jacks. Only two downsides: not much storage space for strings, tuners, etc.; and the price is a little steep. Overall, however, I would recommend this for a Martin dread.

    Martin 640 Guitar Case

    I bought this case to replace the original that housed my Martin D45 Guitar. The original case was damaged by being thrown around by airline baggage handlers. It had cracked in two places, however it protected the valuable guitar. It is a lightweight case and treated properly, will protect the guitar.

    The Martin 640 Case

    I have a 1990 HD 28 P Martin guitar that belonged to my brother-in law before he died of cancer, my sister (Franks Wife) sings with our gospel group and she gave the guitar to me, great gift huh. The original Martin hard case couple of the twist latches were broken off, (which I still have) So I started looking online for Martin hardshell cases, and I found this sweet, sleek Martin 640 hardshell case, which fits like a glove. Thanks Mark for your information. Pastor Andy

    The Martin 640 Case

    Sturdy hard shell extruded plastic case. It does the job for me. Please note: I don't air travel with my guitar. For the money, you can't find a better case. I would recommend this case.

  • from Hanford, CA August 22, 2012Music Background:
    Retired professional. Almost 50 years experience.

    Now THIS is the case I've been wanting.

    The ONLY reason I didn't give this case all 5 stars is because it doesn't seat 100% everytime when I close it. But, with that being said, the product is amazing and a great value. The case fits my D28 perfectly and there is more than sufficient protection and padding, as well as an extra latch on the backside of the case. It looks sleek and attractive with the Martin logo proudly displayed on the upper portion. I am very, very happy with this purchase and the service I have received at Sweetwater. I will definitely be using them again, and again.

    Shallow Storage

    The case fits the guitar really well. However, the storage compartment is shallow. I am use to placing pliers, strings, tuner, capo, slides and a strap at least in the case compartment. If you are expecting to place all those items in the 640 compartment you can forget it. Won't fit. The case does offer great protection.

    Not quite the case I would have liked to see from Martin.

    Wanted to upgrade the case that came with my Martin DCPA1 as that one wasn't even close to the case that came with my 000-18 GE from Martin. While this case is extremely well made and makes a good seal and I would feel comfortable even letting one of the airlines handle this, it just isn't that well designed inside. The pocket is on the small side and could have easily been made more useful. It doesn't work well with the humidifier I like to use. I would have also liked to have seen six latches instead of five, but it serves its purpose for now.
