I don't see why not.How many years is a... lets say $800 guitar good for. I mean a Gibson Les Paul is good for 50 years or more, so is an Epiphone Les Paul good for 50 years or more if taken care of well?
I have a Kramer that I bought at the Santa Ana Guitar Center in 1984, as well as an Epiphone Sheraton that I got around '95.
Granted, neither sees regular use, but if taken care of, there's no reason a solid body or semi-hollow electric can't last forever. Biggest issues would be oxidation in the switch contacts and pots, which are generally easy to handle with DeOxit (or replacement).
A stable environment will protect the neck and body.
