Around 10 years ago, Ron Overs would occasionally post about the pianos he was building here in Australia. I was following all the message posts but they end years back and there have been no further mentions. His website is also woefully out of date. Does anybody know where or what he's up to now?

I dropped by his shop late last year to see if I could find out myself, but just missed him. I did notice that he was working on his upright (Overs 130) and had the frame lying on a workbench. Does anybody have any information about this?

I feel sheepish contacting him directly since my wife and I have now bought our piano and I am just curious. I'd like to see some major piano developments this lifetime (got another 50 years if I'm lucky, so no rush!).
