First I'm going to confess that this was a vanity purchase. I have several Martins, each with a Martin case, except a D-45 I inherited from my late father. He had kept it in a TKL 8815. I simply thought the D-45 deserved a Martin case of its own, but didn't expect this 545 case to be anything more than a high-end TKL with a Martin badge. And boy was I wrong. This case is superior in three significant ways. The first is fit and finish. The D-45 fits in this case as if the case were designed around the guitar. It seemed too snug at first, but after a couple weeks the guitar began to sink into the case, so to speak. Also the lid on this case forms a seal like a Tupperware container. The second is quality. From what I understand, this 545 case is 5-ply, but it has the sturdiness of a 7-ply case. And it seems to be holding humidity better than the TKL case did. It took less than 10 days to "season" it (in the middle of the winter) and the Boveda packs seem to be holding their moisture content longer than they did in the TLK case. The third is appointments. Everything?from the stitching, to the cover, to the hardware, to the accessories compartment, to the interior lining?feels superior to the TLK case. When I first opened it, I honestly thought this case is appointed like a high-end coffin. Now I must admit that from time to time I?m prone to hyperbole. But in this case, I?m not overstating my impression of this case. In fact, I wouldn't be overstating it by saying I?m almost as careful not to mar or scuff this case as I am the guitar it holds. I waited a few months for the ?newness? factor to fade, and I?m still as impressed with this case as the day I first nestled my father?s old D-45 inside it. So if you think your prized Martin deserves commensurate with your esteem for it, then buy this case. Your vanity won?t suffer even if your wallet does.

Terrible odor emanates from case. Guitar Center wouldn't resolve my issue because the case was part of a 'bundled deal' for the Martin D41 they sold me. I've left the guitar on a stand outside of the case for several weeks now and the odor on the guitar has started to dissipate. But I open the case and it still reeks. Maybe it's the glue that's used inside of it, or even the lining, but it's terrible. I love the D41, how it sounds, looks, plays. Guitar Center has really failed the test in the Customer Service Dept.

The BEST thing that ever happened to my guitar!

By Mac Rorie

from H-town, TX

Comments about Martin 12C545EC Vintage Dreadnought Guitar Case:

My 1994 Martin lived in its original TKL for 19 years, but an interaction with the back tires of our van ended that relationship. The Martin vintage guitar case spoke to me, but my guitar was the one who owned the final word. And without question this is the best thing that ever happened to my gutiar. Snug fit, very strong shell, soft handle and the crushed velvet tops my list of reasons why this relationship will last a lifetime; and no more will I place my guitar BEHIND the van. This may be worthy of a song...

Case Upgrade

By Jones Raymond

from West Winfield, NY

Comments about Martin 12C545EC Vintage Dreadnought Guitar Case:

Just purchased this case for my Martin D-35. The D-35 came with a nice molded case but it just wasn't vintage enough! The new case is well worth the money and the guitar fits like a glove! No movement at all and just the feel of the leather handle, the balance, and the weight of the case make it a must have! You spend all this money on a great guitar, go the extra and give it a great vintage style case!

      Comments about Martin 12C545EC Vintage Dreadnought Guitar Case:

      This is a replacement for the case that came with my 1994 Martin HD28, which had a plastic exterior and was not form fitting for the guitar. Most importantly, the old case had only four latches and the case did not hold humidity during the dry Southwestern months. The new case is an excellent fit to the guitar, has six latches, and is made primarily of plywood with a vinyl exterior. The case was expensive but well worth it.

          This case fits my 2016 D-28 perfectly. Snug as a bug in a rug. A very sturdy case that is much nicer than the one that Martin shipped it in. A big and heavy case but very protective. Cannot go wrong with this. Expensive but think of what you keep in it - worth every penny.
