When they give a pawn loan, and the borrower defaults, the pawn shop can only mark up the item a specific percent...  
 
    Is that true for all states? I remember bringing my LP down to the pawnshop about 20-25 years ago and they'd loan me maybe $50 or $75. They'd usually sell crappy guitars for $200 so I'd expect them to mark up my LP to at least $500 if I was to default on it...  
 
    Are there different rules if they buy something outright? Just wondering because I know that they always offer very low prices for anything you bring in, yet the used stuff is usually overpriced.
