I have an older TC530 (I think) - one of the early MIJ resincast ones. It's great. Two lipsticks and a PAF-a-like humbucker (originally had 3 lipsticks). The pickups are rather low output but sound pretty good, it stays in tune very well, the neck is very nice - thicker than an RG but not as thick as a typical Strat.

And it's a super-funky blue burst.

I've got a brown burst TC530 with 3 lipsticks. Even suitable for shredding. The old MIJs have Gotoh tuners

The MIJ ones are really good, I find. You can lightly mod them into great all around guitars.

Myself, I use a Korean 420 for my stage guitar -- I'm really happy with it.

ive got an older one with 3 lipsticks.......I believe Alder, but I could be wrong. I prefer it to any of my strats or teles for blues or twang any day of the week.
