Mike Fink Pawnbroker / Notary Public
In March 1997, Pawn Broker / Notary
Public Mike Fink opened "Copy Rite", a pawn shop located
in downtown Biddeford, Maine. In 2004 he moved his business to Portland
Maine's government district where Copy Rite changed to "Guitar
Grave". Since then, Mike has helped the local music community,
music venues and thousands of low income Mainers with his well-balanced
and fair approach to sales and pawnbroking, changing the attitude
of many who look at pawn shops in a negative light. In 2014, Mike
recieved the prestigious "Citizen Award" for assisting the
Portland Police Department with the recovery of stolen items and for
helping the DA with prosecutions that would not have been possible
without store video footage. Check out the link below for more information.
Aside from being the resident Video
Documentarian and salesman extrordinaire of GUITAR GRAVE, Mark is
the singer and guitar player for local band Pigboat. A fixture of
the Portland Maine metal scene for twenty plus years, Mark's madcap
antics have also spread into various "Clash of the Titans"
performances where he not only battled as Dio against Ozzy for example,
but sustained numerous injuries as a testament to his dedication.
