will this mess up guitar pickups?

Question for wiser souls:

Any reason not to run a small spinning motor next to
guitar pickups?
Motors like the top row in this pic

Powered by 2 AA batteries.

I mean will it magnetize something that should be magnetic
(or vice versa)?  Or some other electrical tainting?

I ask because I sort of want to spin something on the
guitar strings to serve as a bow effect.  I tried the
e-bow briefly and I don't think it'll be of use to me.

Would the same motor be a danger to tape heads within a
certain distance?
