I'm not quite sure about the standard tuner ratio on the stock Casino tuners. Regardless, the Grovers are going to be a huge step up any way you see it.

I think some are 14:1 and some are 18:1.
I'm talking about the Grovers.

Ok, but which one fits the Casino the best?

Just count the number of key turns needed for the tuner post to turn a full circle. Works for me.

Or half-turns to a half-circle if you're as lazy as I am.

My Sheraton is 14:1 by the way. It's a '96 Samick with the unique bridge.

It's not which one fits better, the gear ratio only tells you how accurate you can tune it. The higher the ratio, the better quality the tuner typically.

I believe they are 12:1, either way they work great! I left my Casino out for almost a week un played, walked into my music room to pick it up and every string was still in tune!
