According to a mudcat thread in 2002 Jan Burda used to live in Toronto and worked at the Folklore Centre.  He was currently making guitars in Berrien Springs, Michigan and at some stage made them under the name “Dove”.

Since 1968, Jan has been fine-tuning the art of true Luthier woodworking and artisanship. Much of the wood and materials used in building these fine quality stringed instruments are taken from his own woodland.
