Watch! Aquaman and Game of Throne’s Jason Mamoa Plays Red Hot Chili Peppers on New Bass!

Jason Mamoa of Aquaman and Game of Thrones fame recently turned 41 and celebrated withe a new Fender Precision Bass.  Momoa then proceeded to bust out some Red Hot Chili Peppers!

Mamoa shared footage of the exchange on Instagram after Vincent Van Trigt, a Master Builder with the Fender Custom Shop, gifted the vintage-styled P-Bass to Momoa.

Without hesitation, Mamoa leaned into the bass guitar and played Red Hot Chili Peppers’ 1989 take on Stevie Wonder’s classic “Higher Ground.” Moma played a couple of the opening bars from the version found on the Chili Peppers’ fourth album, Mother’s Milk.

Although it doesn’t look like it, Momoa’s instrument is indeed a new one. The P-Bass he received shows a heavy application of the Fender Custom Shop’s Relic treatment. Before giving it to the actor, Van Trigt showed off the finished four-string axe along with the two neck options he was considering.
