Description & Specs

The Nick 13 Signature Electromatic Tiger Jet from Gretsch is a stylistic spin on the classic instrument. Vocalist, guitarist and songwriter for California psychobilly trio Tiger Army, Nick 13 infuses his eclectic influences into this signature Gretsch. From early rock ‘n’ roll and doo wop to stylized punk with a Buddy Holly twist, the Electromatic Tiger Jet blends retro style with modern flair.

The Nick 13 Electromatic features a sleek black finish with white binding and cream pickup inserts, an oxblood pickguard with TigerBat logo, chrome hardware and distinctive TigerBat inlays. Black Top Filter’Tron pickups deliver an unmistakable rockabilly sound through a chambered mahogany body for a wide, balanced tone with full lows and clean highs. Intuitive and responsive, this Gretsch signature guitar is equipped with a Bigsby B50 vibrato tailpiece and an anchored Adjusto-Matic bridge.
