Modern Gretsch Guitars

New Nick 13/Tiger Army Signature Gretsch

26

I think the guitar is awesome as is. I love the bat.

27

Been wondering when someone other than Guild would notice how cool those white Dyna’s look on a black Guitar. Very cool

28

I like the bat. I would have thought it was kinda the point of the guitar to have things which are different from stock? And just so you know this is coming from someone who has never heard of Nick 13 or Tiger army.

29

I like the bat, like a psycho version of the steer inlay

I think they look good on my 6120 too. I believe I was the second person to order T-Armonds like that. They told me Lisa Marie Presley’s then husband was the first.

31

Oh, now that's a nice guitar! Great styling and cool appointments. I'd love to have one.

32

I got no problem wid da bat. Pickup inserts could also have been red.

Red is never wrong.

I agree. Red inserts would rock on this guitar. This thread made me decide to ask TV Jones to make me some perloid inserts. Sent them an email. I’ll let you know what they say.

34

Well red is faster, isn't it? Everyone knows that.

35

cool guitar, but why would anyone have those giant thumbscrews on a melita if you can have the flat screws instead?

– WB

I agree, I prefer the flat screws as many do, but Nick actually keeps the tall thumb screws on all his Melitas. He doesnt do much palm muting so I assume they're not an issue for him...

I love the tarnished looking gold on your 6120s Bigsby, the shiny Gold on my 6120T '55 VS is the only thing that I don't like about it!

37

Anyone here get one of these 13? I’m told they sold real quick.

38

Phbbbb... collectors to re sell when the price is collectible....

39

Really love that guitar!

Here's Nick with his Gretsch performing with Tiger Army

41

That guitar sounds great!

42

I'd take one. But the headstock Inlay is too creepy for me

– ChimingBell

Citizen, what could you possibly have against bats?

44

Tiger Army all have similar haircuts. I haven't seen that in a band in a while.

45

what was the price on this anyway? Tiger Army is one of my favorite bands but I like my 53 VS way more...

47

I know his main touring guitar was the Harrison jet, this seems very similar to that, I guess aside from cosmetics the only big change is the ebony fretboard. When I saw TA in 2015, Nick had two Pre-fender black jets, the Harrison model, a white penguin and a white falcon. The falcon only came out for like two songs.

48

I am a huge Nick 13/Tiger Army fan so of course I had to buy this Duo Jet. It is amazing as you would expect. I know they only released 13 of them but I have 0 plans of selling and I have been playing it like crazy. It is a cool guitar.

49

Good for you. Enjoy the heck out of it.

Kingrocker, the neck looks like rosewood in your photo and not ebony as advertised.

Regardless, beautiful guitar. Sorry I passed on these.
