What kind of truss rods do Ibanez use?

This is my first post on the site, so hey, how's it going. I have a quick question which has defied my researching so I'm wondering if anyone could give me a hand. I'm building my own guitar (it's the first one I'm trying to make, so we'll see how it goes) but I ran into a problem - I don't really know that much about truss rods, besides what they do. Does anyone know what kind of truss rods Ibanez use? I believe that they use a kind which fits into a U - shaped channel, which slots into a flat - bottomed rout in the neck, but I'm not sure.

Failing that, if anyone could point me in the direction of such a thing I would be most appreciative - I really don't want to have to cut a curved rout in the neck; I'm pretty sure I'd screw something up. Better to start simple, I figure.

Ideally, I'd like to make a pretty low - profile neck, so the truss rod would have to be on the thin side.

Thanks in advance for your help.

double rod maybe?
one rotatable rod attached to a fixed rod.
tighten the rotatable rod, the double rod bends, loosen it, it returns straight.

The original Wizards had an adjustable rod attached to a fixed, flat bar.

Thanks, that looks about right. We'll find out, I guess.
