I'm going to start on a custom jem project. But I can't find any front route bodies on ebay, just rear route ones.. Thanks Sorry I'm pretty new here.

Yes, Jeanine pickguard on ebay makes some. The only thing you need to remember is the cut out for the pickup selector will need to be bigger than on a front routed guitar. Here is my ngd thread. It has a rear routed guitar with a pickguard.
