Kitchen Countertop remodel

We have a problem with a project we are working on. The walls of the kitchen are not even and the counter top isn't setting correctly up against the wall. We know that we can sand the back of the back splash to help it fit correctly but these are specially made cupboards from approximately late 1960's or early 70's. They are deeper than those cupboards today so we really need to keep to the front of the cupboards if possible.
I'm not sure what it would be called, but there has to be some kind of strip that we could adjust at the back of the counter back splash that is laminated in the design of the counter top, which is a basic Fusion Granite purchased at Menards.
Can anyone help me find a supplier for laminated strips? We could make this strip but there should be some kind of supply for this problem.
Any help would be appreciated.

How many inches deep are your base cabinets?

Menards sells the matching laminate in sheets.
