L. Edward "Ed" McGlincy of Bayville, New Jersey made acoustic guitars for Bob Dylan and Gordon Lightfoot amongst others. He started out in 1968 working part time as a guitar builder. By the early 1980s he was making steel string guitars (typically inspired by vintage Martin 000 and OM guitars) and Appalachian dulcimers as well as doing repairs as "Eds Musical Instruments", before eventually retiring due to ill health.
