Allan Clarke is the Platinum Room Manager at the Hollywood location and is an expert on the inventory .
Allan Clarke is among the most knowledgeable guitar experts in the Guitar Center chain as well as the entire country. With more than two decades in musical instrument retail, there isn’t much in the world of guitars that Allan hasn’t seen. Stellar instruments that have graced the Hollywood GC walls in years past include a 1955 Gibson Les Paul Gold Top and a Brazilian rosewood Martin D-50. The classics aside, boutique is Allan’s true dojo. Driskill, Baker, Suhr, Tom Anderson, Collings, Olsen, acoustic or electric, if it is a limited edition fine instrument, Allan knows it well. Allan’s reverence for guitars is reflected in his philosophy of regarding fine instruments as “functional art.” Says Allan, “Many modern and contemporary guitars are definitely works of art. Since these art forms also serve as musical instruments that are meant to be played, I think the phrase “functional art” is very appropriate.”
