Best to try before you buy.

Edited: August 20, 2017, 8:20 PM · Nothing. Augustin is not a model name, it's actually part of the full company name. Some sites refer to the company as VLM-Augustin and others Viva la Musica, same company. I have a Diamond and the box had both names on it. I've seen a couple of site pictures when I was looking for mine that showed the older Diamond with not as much curve as the current Diamond, but it's either a discontinued older style or an incorrect photo. If you order by either name, it will be the same rest. That is what my research bore out when I was shopping.

@Michael. Not a design flaw. Are you sure you fitted it correctly?

Cheers Carlo
