What is the name of a 6th chord (1 3 5 6) if you add a major 7th. No extensions the 6th is a 6th and not a 13th in this case. The chord is (from low to high) 076640. Thank you.

Generally, I would still call it a maj13 chord, the most essential notes are in the chord anyway. If you play a 13 chord on a guitar you won't normally include all the tones. So I'd go with calling it a maj13 chord.

But your chord, without a context, I would be tempted to call simply Dbmadd9/E.


EDIT: Or, you can actually call it maj7/6 according to Ted Green's Chord Chemistry
(1, 3, 5, 6, 7) = maj7/6

You'll usually see that as a maj13; it's only usually referred to as a sixth chord if the seventh is not present. If a seventh is there, you'll likely see it notated as a thirteenth regardless of the octave.
