I have an original 1983 SG Deluxe "Firebrand". Serial # 83050538 or 83050532. It's hard to read the last 3 digits. But can anyone tell me what pickups it originally came with. and what the value of it is. The neck was once busted in several pieces but it's now put back together and plays amazingly. Not origial color or bridge set.

That serial number indicates a 1980 guitar. YDDDYXXX so yours was made on the 305th day of 1980. For a value, I am not sure, it would depend on a lot of factors, the neck break, especially in several pieces would not help. I would think probably $700-1500 max. Your best bet would be to try and find a copy of the Guitar Blue Book, or Vintage Guitar's Price Guide. As for pickups, your best bet is to pull them out and tell us what the backs look like and and serial numbers stamped on them. Pics of the backs with that info might help us to id the PUs for you.
I only buy guitars that my wife likes, thankfully she has loved everyone I have picked up.
