Weird trussrod?

  1. I just picked up a trussrod from the locar guitar store, and it looks a bit weird...

    This is what it looks like from the end(drawing), sorry about the .bmp format, my work computer didn't want to change it to jpeg

    Looks like a single-acting, channel-type trussrod. To be used in a plain (as opposed to curved) rout. Never saw that wide back plate before, though. Luthiers please correct me if this is not correct?
