Pike 13 is the forty-third studio album by guitarist Buckethead, and the thirteenth installment in the Buckethead Pikes Series.
The album was hinted at when Buckethead announced The Mark of Davis shortly after announcing Pike 12 leaving a gap between both albums leaving people to speculate about the missing Pike 13 album. On May 13, Buckethead's 44th birthday, Buckethead announced Pike 15 as a limited edition album and shortly after during the day he also released Pike 13. Unlike any of the pikes released during this period this album was released immediately as a standard edition album without giving any samples or information about it.
The album shows an unmasked teenager Buckethead hugging his father. The cover comes at a time in which Buckethead's father has been ill  and it also marks the first time the artist officially reveals his face to the public.
