Extra backplate for MC's?

Hi guys

Sorry if this is a really newbie question but I was just puzzled by a few things. I was looking at Universes because i'm thinking about getting a 7 string, and I noticed on the Universe Multicolour, there is an extra backplate. What is this for? Obviously theres one for the trem, one for the input jack but a third one? Here's a really clear pic of one: http://jemsite.com/axes/jem77/77pmc05b.jpg I only noticed because there wasn't one on my Jem7VWH (Best guitar ever )

Edit - I've just noticed it on the DNA model too.

Swirls are rear routed for the control cavity, obviously soyou won't see the cavity in the front [normally hidden behind a solid colored guard]

Ah yeah...of course..sorry lol I should have guessed because when I had work done on my Jem7VWH the guy said something about it looking the same because the pickguard covers up the routing. Thanks for clearing that up for me
