Installing Sink/Wall not Square

I pulled off our old sink. The old sink had a backsplash on the back and then a seperate piece for the backsplash on the side. My new sink is a one piece systen with a backsplash only on the back. When I place the new sink in place, the walls are off square by a good 3/4". The previous sink had that 2nd piece to hide the gap. I don't know what to do here. The new sink is made of stone. I picked it up at one of the major hardware stores in town. I was going to use sheetrock compound and fill the gap and feather it out up and out the wall? Is there anything else I can do here??

Remove the drywall on the one end and install new 2x4/6 to form a "square" end. Just sister them to the existing and then reapply new drywall, tape, sand and paint.

This is the easiest method to avoid all the time trying to make due. At lest when this is done, all looks great.

Hope this helps!
