2-Way Truss rods?

    I've got a 2-way truss rod to install in a bass that I'm making. And I thought that I was sure that truss rod channels had to be curved to function properly. Now, a friend of mine is doing a similar procedure and he routed his channel with no curve.

    My question is, since the truss rod bends in both directions, does the channel still have to be curved?
