Low-tech solution to an annoying problem: Musical Pictures!

I'm constantly annoyed by my sims wanting to buy musical instruments. Why do you want a bass when you already have a guitar? Why does a knowledge sim need a drum kit anyway?
So in stead of buying them an actual drum kit, I thought I could buy them a picture of a drum kit.
These three paintings, of a bass, drum kit and guitar, fulfils the "buy a ..." wants.

All unique registered GUIDs, so they won't interfere with anything in the game. They show up in the musical instruments catalogue, as well as decorative.
These pictures do not fulfil the "buy a painting" want. It looks to me like multiple wants can't be done (not this way anyway).

The picture it is cloned from only requires the original game, but since the wants are University only, it might require uni as well. If you don't have uni, you don't need it anyway.

Edit: Bubbleblower Painting added.

MusicalPictures.zip contains all four musical paintings, but not the bubbleblower one.

Feel free to recolour or steal my idea.
