    bit late, but for dr zaius's Q#1 I would like to link this answer Joe Desperado gave to a similar question I asked on your consolidated one piece neck build thread:


    If I read the answer correctly it is that since the neck will tend to have more curvature to the bend the further out from the butt, the rod has a progressive curvature to counteract this; The more curvature the more aggresive the straightening tendency. Likely the original idea was to have a continually changing curvature, say an involute curve, but having a dual curvature allowed more practical manufacturing design (machine has gear train that profiles one radius to a point, then shifts to the other radius) without compromising strenth or performance of the truss rod unduly (the stresses at the anchor and the adjustment nut are far greater than where the two radii merge, thus this discontinuity is not the weakest link).
