Product Description


Artist FB15 15ft (4.5m) Fat Boy Braided Guitar Cable/Lead

The Artist FB15 "Fat Boy" is a tough cable, thicker than our standard braided cable. The jack connectors are protected with heat shrink both on the inside and outside for a prolonged lifetime.

This is a professional-grade, low-noise guitar lead, suitable for guitars and other instruments. It has 6.5mm (1/4") jack connectors with all metal housing and internal heat shrink. The cable is sheathed in a braided cloth which makes it more difficult to tangle, and much more robust.

Artist Fat Boy Guitar Lead

By: on 8 April 2024
Just received my Artist Fat Boy Guitar Lead. This is a great quality, robust guitar lead. I own many Artists XLR cables so when deciding on purchasing a new guitar lead I thought I'd give the Artist FB a go. Very happy with my purchase as I usually buy Fender or Ernie Ball guitar leads which are quite pricey. All in all the Artists FB guitar lead is an exceptionally well built lead at a far cheaper price then most "Brand Name" leads.

Hi everyone! If you want a nice, clean sounding, but also distorted with that one pedal of yours, then this cable is right for you. It’s REALLY tough, and feels great. It’s been unlike any other cable I’ve had, and it’s lasted longer than my other more expensive cables! Thanks Artist guitars.

FatBoy Cable

A beautifully finished braided cable, very heavy duty and hard wearing. Low noise and High finish. Cables are unsung heroes in our world and they can get very expensive but Artist Guitars deliver a high quality cable at a super competitive price. Why pay $75 or $100 . I thoroughly recommend these cables. They rock.

Robust Cable

It works great and no discernible tone suck at all. Robust cable that's not too rigid. Another Artist home run.

Fat Boy Braided Guitar Cable/Lead

This is Not a professional lead this is verry misleading I purchased one and tested it against my fender mid range leads that were only a small price extra. These Artist leads I purchased made me loose tone. Were not thicker than any cheep lead and probably no better. Waist of money

Artist Guitars Response
I am so sorry about your experience with the cables. I have sent you an email so we can help you further about this issue.

Great lead at a great price

By: on 24 February 2021
I recently bought a different lead at a similar price point from another online store and have to handle it so carefully because the fittings seems so flimsy and not up to the job. This Artist lead is really strong sturdy. I really like the braiding - no tangles and easy to distinguish it from other cables. I won't waste my time with other suppliers now.

Fat Boy Favourite

By: on 18 November 2020
The Fat Bay 15 braided guitar cable is fantastic. One of my favourites. Clean sound transfer and your can feel the strength and flexibility and at a ridiculous price. Arrived in only a few days.

Delivery to Perth was surprisingly quick with all the disruption going on and as usual with Artist Guitars products the lead was of good quality and good value for money. Would strongly recommend this product

This is better than the more expensive cable I needed to replace.. It's well made and I expect it will last for some time. Nice to have 15 ft for performing. Appreciated the prompt delivery and great quality product for the price. I highly recommend Artist gear.

Artist Braided Guitar Lead

By: on 21 February 2018
This a quality lead with good solid connectors, the braid is tight and with a nice finish. The lead sounds as good as you would hope for. I highly recommend the 4.5 metre for a lounge situation, not too long to trip over. The lead is priced right too, at the moment you can buy this lead from your Artist retailer for under $20, its a bargain.

No tangled leads!
