    Reproduction Fender Tag (Better photo)

    My original Fender Tag was so rusty some of the letters were difficult to read... I had a new one made by A.G. Backeast.
    I am very pleased with the results and would not hesitate to use them again; and no, I am not affiliated with them in any way just a satisfied customer. They got the alignment of the characters exactly right...

    I've dealt with them twice, great communication, both times we were working from Broadcast sheets, no original tags, and there was a lot of research to confirm what was correct.
    It's unusual not to get a response like that...

    I've used them before. Very happy as well. I might do the same and get a extra one for my '70.

    If you have a VPN on your email service, try turning it off for the message. Sometimes I have to with mine...

    I was going to have them make me a new tag for my 69' Coronet R/T that was missing just for my gratification, not for resale value. I never did. I eventually sold the car. Followed it thru the next 3 owners and eventually it sold overseas with a remade tag for triple for what I sold it for.....
