According to Stephen Pate in the Hunting for the Woody Guthrie’s Guitars article, he wrotes that: The Gibson L-00 can be seen in several pictures from 1941 on. It is famous for the “this machine kills Fascists” label that Woody put on many of his guitars. Since Woody toned down any criticism of the Nazi’s until after Hitler invaded Russia on June 22, 1941 we can safely date the picture after June of 1941. http://njnnetwork.com/2012/07/hunting-for-the-guitars-of-woody-guthrie/more
