Blue Book of Guitars says this:"Instruments previously produced in Japan circa late 1970s to early 1980s.
The only Suntech trademark instruments encountered so far have been bolt-on neck Fender-style Strat copies. These instruments are very nice reproductions of the Strat model. Research continues on the Suntech trademark (source: Roland Lozier, Lozier Piano & Music)." I suspect you are correct that these were produced for a small music store chain, but their source may never be known !! Have you checked the underside of the pickups? I have identified sources a couple of times by finding markings there.....
