Jason Momoa celebrated his 41st birthday earlier this month, and he received quite the present: A beautiful new custom Fender bass.

Momoa shared the video below of Fender Master Builder Vincent van Trigt personally delivering him his new bass, and his reaction was priceless. After freaking out over the bass, he promptly picks it up and starts slapping the opening bass line from Red Hot Chili Peppers’ cover of “Higher Ground.”

Momoa shared his gratitude in the video’s caption writing, “@vincevantrigt_fender and @fender surprised me today with a lil pre-present celebration. Last day of 40. Vince, you are an amazing artist. Mahalo nui loa. Stay tuned for some cool stuff that Fender is doing for the kids.”

(WARNING: Video contains some NSFW language, but you’d say the same thing too upon receiving a sweet custom bass.)
