This is a pack of six (6) Bourns 1MOhm (1 Megaohm or 1000Kohm) audio-taper potentiometers, perfect for use as volume controls in guitars, cigar box guitars, and more. These pots include a washer and nut for mounting. These are high-quality pots that will last a very long time, and they have a nice firm turning torque, not like those cheap pots that turn very easily. On a guitar, you want a pot with some torque to the turn, so that you don't drastically change your volume every time the knob gets bumped.

Higher-resistance pots such as these are often recommended for use with disc piezos, as they are better matched to the piezos' high impedance.
