No, you should be able to discern a substantial difference.

it probably needs to be replaced - i just had the tone pot and 5 way switch replaced on my Jem because they had both gone bad. I wanted to go ahead and replace the volume pot also because it is a litte sticky, but a "regular" sized pot wouldn't fit in the body....
the new pots and switches will make a big difference though

Just pop off the pickguard and have a look, could just be a wire has come un-done or a little loose.

If it works sometimes, and not others, could just be a cold solder joint, re-solder and all should be well.
