Recording guitar solo sound problems - no central presence

I'm currently doing a demo CD.
I use a Zoom GFX-8 unit which simply sounds great through my HiWatt Custom 100 head and Marshall Cab.

I want to record direct into my sound card (SB Live) as much as possible, and playing around with the amp simulator section I can get a good tone, but what's missing for the solos is the central presence.
I can't get any dynamics happening and it's sounds a bit flat and the solo can get lost in the mix even if I increase its volume.

Should I mic the amp and record it that way?
Anybody with this kind of experience?
I use PRSs, JEMs, Fenders.

Can you bump the EQ up a little around 2.5k durring the solo? Sometimes that does wonders.
