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 ....

Algunos estuches son "blandos" de tela y otros son "duros" como una caja. ¿A los dos dirías funda? Y eso de me da que... sería se me hace que... in Mexico.

Perdona, acabo de ver esto por primera vez. Tienes razón, puede que al duro le llamara estuche, pero si oyera funda tampoco me sonaría raro.
