request for a hard to find document by Steve Newberry

Hi! I would like to post the following request for help. Is it okay? And if so, where (under which topic) would it be suitable?
Thanks

I am not a luthier, but I love guitars (I am having a beauty made for me at this time) and I love good writing.

A few days ago I stumbled across an article by Ervin Somogyi (2013) in which he made reference to another article by (the late) Steve Newberry, entitled "Vicente Tatay and His Guitars" (American Lutherie, issue #66, Summer 2001, pp. 47-49).

Somogyi wrote, "Give yourself a treat and look that article up; it’s as well written as anything Mark Twain ever wrote." Well, I would love to read that article but unfortunately, this back issue seems no longer available, and the Big Red Book Volume Six, which offers this issue (among others) is a tome, most of which probably holds very little interest for me.

So, I am writing this on the slimmest hope that perhaps someone among you has a copy of that article, in some sort of digital form (jpg, pdf, or any kind of scan) that he or she would be willing to pass along to me. I hope that doesn't amount to any sort of copyright infringement. After all, good writing deserves to be read and appreciated.

Herb,

I would try to contact the GAL directly and see if they can help you with this. They must have a digital copy on file.

I have a copy the Big Red Vol. 6, I'll see if I can find the article and scan it.
