Jacob trying to convince Hurley: free will or not?

Maybe Jacob left the guitar case just to remind Hurley about Charlie and affect his guilty conscience so he goes aboard 316. This reveals his personality a bit: Jacob seems to be contradicting himself, especially during this encounter. He tells Hurley he has freedom of choice, but he gives him the information about the flight and leaves the guitar to ensure he remembers Charlie and goes back to the Island, giving him the illusion of free will.

Interestingly, this is what, as noted by Ben, Locke does in ("Cabin Fever"), when he manipulates Hurley into following the two of them to the cabin.
