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.

Gretsch's Instrument Limited Lifetime Warranty FMIC warrants your Gretsch brand instrument to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for as long as it is owned by the original retail purchaser, except that pickups, switches, jacks, controls, all other electronic components, tuning machines, hardware, pickguards, plated surfaces, gig bags, cases and case hardware are warranted for a period of one (1) year from the date of original purchase. This warranty applies only to the original retail purchaser when this instrument is purchased from an Authorized Gretsch Dealer and is subject to the limitations set forth herein. IMPORTANT: PLEASE RETAIN YOUR ORIGINAL SALES RECEIPT, AS IT IS YOUR PROOF OF PURCHASE VALIDATING THIS LIMITED WARRANTY. FMIC has established a network of independent Authorized Service Centers for warranty service. The Gretsch Dealer from whom you purchased your instrument may also be authorized for warranty service and should be the first point of contact when service of any kind is required for your Gretsch instrument. To receive warranty service, return the complete instrument to an Authorized Service Center, with your sales receipt as proof of purchase, during the applicable warranty period. Defective components that qualify for coverage under this warranty will be repaired or replaced (at FMIC's discretion) without charge. Remedies beyond normal service repair of any Gretsch instrument require both an evaluation and confirmation of the defect and a direct recommendation to FMIC from an Authorized Service Center for alternative considerations. All transportation, insurance and freight charges associated with warranty service and repairs on Gretsch instruments are the responsibility of the purchaser, as is any service initiated for the purpose of customizing setups or adjustments beyond factory specifications. Initial standard setup and adjustment of the instrument and its components at the time of purchase are considered normal Dealer product preparation, and are not covered by this warranty.
