Here's a link to logos:  
I have Fender logos on all three clones I built (Champ, Deluxe and Bassman). I know that most people here won't give Fender any credit for the replicas, but I do. They designed these amps top to bottom, marketed them, and shaped music history with them. Thank you Leo, I appreciate it! Who am I trying to kid? My replicas have everything to do with Fender. I used the Weber speakers most like the originals. I used Jensen copper foil in oil caps to get as close to the originals as I could. For the Bassman, I used a different circuit than on the schematic because AFAIK most '59 Bassmans do. By putting the Fender logos on my amps, I am giving all the credit to Fender. I just assembled them, which is easy to do for someone with a little technical skill. Why should I take credit for these awesome amps, when all I did was work on them a couple of nights? Fender spent years building amps and working on the circuits leading to these designs.  
Everybody knows I built them. I never try to pass them off as originals.  
Don't bash me, that's just my opinion. I wouldn't put my name on an amp I've copied. It's like building a $65,000 '57 Chevy replica and putting a John Smith logo on it.  
BTW, I love all three amps, and I got all the parts from Clark Amps. I wouldn't trade them for anything.
