Oh yeah, man! That is quite the looker. Post sound clips please.
Yea sure man, im working on my own song atm.. but Im gonna need to buy a new sound card for my comp to record it... or some other means of recording.... I dont have any FX processors only an Ibanez DS7 and the preamp modelling on the V-ampire I have. I think it might have an output lead though so ill run through it

EDIT: Can I run a line from my headphones jack on my amp to my comp? or wont that work..

is that one actually neck thru? or set neck? i was looking at another natural finish SZ, and the guitar was pretty awesome, but i turned it over, and looked at the nice contoured neck heel, and low and behold, it was set neck... very disappointing... it was real similiar to urs in fact, had those duncan ibanez pups, had the tune-o-matic, i don't remember the inlays but i know it wasn't simple dot inlays...

set neck is cheaper at the cost of tone and sustain... thru neck is the best way to go... some people can't hear the difference, some can...

if the back of the guitar is painted then no... if its not painted then yes, theres a way to tell... if the neck continues straight back all the way thru the guitar its neck thru, if u can see a line in between the body and the neck and it looks like a bolt on glued into place its set neck...

what does painted have to do with it ?

to be simple :
set neck : like gibson (LP's)
neck thru's : like Jackson Soloists (man they rock)
bolt on : like fender strats
