Name: Brett Wickers Date: March 02/09 Review: Martin Thermoplastic Case Rating you give the Martin 600 Series guitar case: 4 - Highly recommend it
Likes: Very durable exterior; takes accidental scuffs & abrasions well; provides relatively good insulation & protection from bad outdoor weather (i.e. rain).
Dislikes: Being molded plastic, it has a cheesey look that some folks don't particularly care for & is somewhat non-traditional in appearance though these things have been around since the early 70s.
Additional Comments: Despite its cosmetic appearance, it's a very sturdy case. I've had mine transported in the air cargo section of a passenger liner & subjected to typical airline baggage handling abuse. I would have more skepticism & concern over my guitar's safety if it were inside one of the more traditional wood/tolex cases in this particular environment. The 'classic' cases look nicer but are better reserved for lighter gig or home use.
