The man who really wanted a new Fender Telecaster has finally turned himself in…

Hayden Snyder, 32, was wanted after he stole a Fender Telecaster guitar from the String Shoppe by stuffing the instrument down his pants and walking out of the store.

Snyder had since been dubbed the ‘Guitar Bandit’ by area police departments as this was not the first time he had stolen a guitar in this fashion.

Hayden surrendered himself to police on May 22 and has since bonded out of jail and is now awaiting his court date.
