Explanation: The E major thirteenth is a six-note chord (the 11th, A in the case of Emaj13, is normally excluded). For practical reasons the chord is normally played with omitted notes and/or inverted. It is often abbreviated as Emaj13 (not to be confused with E13).
Omissions: Emaj13(no5): E - G# - D# - F# - C#, Emaj13(no9): E - G# - B - D# - C#.
Theory: The E major thirteenth chord is constructed by extending the major eleventh chord with a major thirteenth note.
