estuche - masculine noun (el) - case, box, sheath. Look up estuche in the dictionary

El estuche de mi guitarra ya está muy maltratado. Creo que ya se va a deshacer.
My guitar case is really beat up. I think it's going to fall apart soon.
In Spain the translation for your sentence would be something like:
La funda de mi guitarra está muy vieja. Me da (creo) que se va a romper de un momento a otro.
This is what I love most about languages: the indefinite amount of possibilities ....
