I'm sure it will last a while. If it works when you get it then it shouldn't go bad as long as you install it correctly..

I got a pickup from the local music store for a similar project once. The bloke rooted around in the bottom drawer and four an old (brand new) pickup that still had a red dot sticker and hand written $16.99. He said it must have been there for a least 18 years. To his credit he honoured the price.
