Does anyone have any information about this specific model of the Stratocaster?
The serial number is A041666.

I'll be really grateful if anyone has some info about this type.

Thank you very much!

The only piece of information I can offer is that it's one of several variations of the Contemporary Stratocaster (MIJ). Seems that your has what I believe to be a System III tremolo and is missing a couple of fine tuners.

Thank you very much. I found out it's probably the 27-5800 model. Has anybody info about the value of a guitar like this? Are they rare or just one of million that were made? Is it hard to get parts for the tremolo system?

I have the same strat...its a 1985-86 contemporary stratocaster,model#27-4200,system one trem,two humbuckers,one volume,one tone control,three way selector switch...i luv this strat,its part of the contemporary strats made in Japan in the mid 80s when no strats were made in the USA...the price is all over the place...i seen a restored one and hes asking 1750 big ones lol...i bought mine two weeks ago all original and barely a mark on it for 499...i am very happy with it,looks like you need a couple fine tuners...the color on mine is burnt copper i think.

I should also say that its an A series and these contemporary strats were the first MIJ strats to have Stratocaster on the head stock,all other MIJ strats had Squire on the head stock. THanx

Where can we get these? They're really hard to catch, especially in HH form.
