Wall mounted 1/4" jacks?

Has anyone ever permanently ran 1/4" cables in the walls and mounted Female 1/4" Jacks around the room to keep cable clutter to a minimum? My room is 18' x 20', and the roof comes to a pitch right from the floor up. I would like to have the mixer in the middle of the room, which means having to do something like this with the guitar cables. Thoughts?

i've seen people flushmount snakes to walls, it looks nice but i don't see any other reason for dooin' it. one thing to keep in mind is to use balanced cables, as instrument cables will add more noise over long distances.

Yes indeed, you can pick up wall plates and jacks for a pretty good price. I would not skrimp on the cable though as wyd stated. And be sure to keep the cable runs away from electrical lines. If they must dross each other do so at a 90 degree's, never run them parrallel to each other.

That is a rule I have known about for quite some time now. I am a car audio installer by trade. In my line of work, the rule is.. signal cables and power cables should not come within 3 feet of each other.

Thanks for the answers.
